Respected Representation In Premises Liability Cases
When an accident of any type, such as a slip-and-fall, is caused by the negligence of a property owner, the property owner should be held accountable. Claims against property owners are referred to as premises liability claims. At Kammholz Messina, LLP, our attorneys have decades of experience holding residential and commercial property owners accountable for injuries caused to visitors to their property. In these and all personal injury cases, we are committed to our core values of integrity, creativity, personal service and excellence.
Experienced Representation For Victims Of Slip-And-Fall Accidents
Slip-and-fall accidents, along with trip-and-fall accidents, are the most common type of premises liability claim. These are cases in which a person slips on some sort of liquid that has been spilled in a walkway or on ice that the owner has refused to take care of, or trips over an object that has been left in a walkway.
These cases hinge on proving that a property owner was negligent. In order to be considered negligent, a property owner must have known about a hazard and had time to address it. For example, if a freezer in a grocery store leaked for weeks and the owner knew about it, the owner can be held accountable if someone slips on the spill. On the other hand, if there is a sudden leak and a person slips before a property owner has had the opportunity to deal with it, there is no negligence. We will determine if there is a case, and we will take action.
