At minimum, we expect the property to be free from unnecessary danger caused by faulty construction, negligent upkeep or failure to clean up hazardous spills.

Bringing A Premises Liability Claim
There are numerous types of premises liability claims, including:
- Grocery store and restaurant slip-and-fall claims: Water spills and food on the floor are common problems in restaurants and grocery stores. Slip-and-fall claims stemming from these spills are the most common premises liability claims.
- Faulty stairs, escalators and elevators: Our lawyers represent clients who have been hurt because of malfunctioning elevators and escalators, as well collapsing stairways and faulty handrails.
- Lack of upkeep: When homeowners fail to keep their trees trimmed and their properties safe, guests are in danger of suffering serious injuries.
- Accidents on construction sites: It is common for kids to wander into construction sites and suffer serious injuries.

Most of these claims are handled through the insurance companies, so there is very little enmity between plaintiffs and defendants.
