Slip, Trip & Fall Injuries/ Premises Liability

Property owners have a responsibility to keep their property safe from dangerous conditions that may injure others. Premises liability holds business owners, governments and property owners liable for injuries that occur on their properties, often due to negligent maintenance or unsafe construction. When property owners neglect to keep their property safe they endanger you and everyone else in your community. Common causes of injuries due to unsafe premises are:

  • Slip and falls due to dangerous walkways, flooring or failure to remove or treat snow or ice
  • Falling objects
  • Negligent or inadequate security
  • Construction site injuries
  • Fires and electrocutions
  • Improper lighting
  • Falls due to unsafe stairs, railings or balconies
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Escalator and elevator accidents

One of the most important pieces of evidence in these cases are photographs of the allegedly dangerous condition at the time of the injury or as soon after as possible. If possible, take photos or have someone take photos for you of the area where you were injured. If you retain our firm soon after the injury, we can take pictures for you but the closer in time the photos are to the injury the better. In addition to obtaining photos of the area, you should seek prompt medical attention if you have been injured. Finally, do not discuss your case with the property owner (other than to initially report the injury) or their insurance company and do not sign any documents until you have consulted with an attorney.

Careless property owners can cause people to suffer severe injuries which can have significant economic and emotional consequences for the injured person and their family. If you or a loved one has been injured by a dangerous condition on someone else’s property, contact the experienced personal injury attorneys at Maschka, Riedy and Ries for a free consultation to discuss your rights.
