Premises Liability: When You’re Injured, We Help You Pursue Full And Fair Compensation

When it comes to injuries involving busted elevators, rickety stairways or slippery and unmarked floors, it’s important to understand your options for holding negligent property owners or caretakers accountable.

Although no one wants to throw around lawsuits without reason, the truth is that by pursuing a slip-and-fall or premises liability claim, you can keep chronically neglectful property owners honest and even prevent future injuries.

At Goodwin Como, P.C., our team of experienced, local attorneys — Benjamin F. Goodwin and Amanda M. Como — is here to help you make sense of the law, obtain appropriate medical treatment and pursue the compensation you deserve.

So What Does Premises Liability Really Mean?

This phrase is often used to refer to cases where a dangerous condition or hazard on the land or property of another causes an individual to suffer an injury. The land may be that of another individual, hotel, inn, restaurant or other business. The list of dangerous conditions is almost infinite.

Common dangerous conditions that result in injuries include:

  • Broken or loose steps
  • Broken or loose handrails
  • Broken or loose floorboards
  • Weak flooring
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Exposed electrical wires
  • Unsecured shelving
  • Missing tiles
  • Holes in flooring or ground
  • Sharp edges
  • Exposed spikes and nails
  • Tripping hazards such as uneven carpets, floors, mats or linoleum
  • Balcony collapses
  • Roof collapses
  • Slippery surfaces
