Premise Liability

Premises liability cases often raise complicated issues about the duty of property owners to those on their property.  Our lawyers effectively bring claims for compensation against the person owning or controlling the property at the time of an injury.  We know the right questions to ask the property owners (such as whether the injury occurred to an invited guest, or whether the owner took any precautions or warned of potential dangers existing on the property) in order to build a successful case.
