As consumers and invited guests, we have a right to expect that the places we visit will be safe. In fact, there are laws requiring property owners to maintain hazard-free premises. If there are dangers that lead to an accident and you are injured, you have a legal right to seek compensation. But premises liability is governed by detailed laws and the burden of proof is high for the plaintiff. So after a property injury, it is important to get the right legal team on your side.

Establishing Liability In A Property Accident Claim
If your injury required costly medical attention, caused you significant pain or left you unable to work for a period of time, we can help you obtain the fair compensation that you need. But premises liability cases can be extremely complex. Just because a person sustained injuries does not necessarily mean the property owner was at fault, or that the victim will automatically be compensated. When we pursue your premises liability case, we must prove that the property owner knew about the hazard (or should have known) and did not take the proper and timely steps to fix it.
As your legal counsel, we begin an immediate investigation of the facts surrounding your accident. Depending on your circumstances, this could include analyzing video footage, talking to witnesses and store employees, reviewing cleaning logs, and investigating the property before valuable evidence is destroyed. Our in-house investigators are extremely skilled in securing this vital evidence, which our lawyers will then use as the backbone of your claim.
