Premises Liability
Practice Areas

White & Weddle, P.C.

Property owners have a duty to keep visitors on their property safe. When they fail to fulfill that duty, they should be held accountable. Premises liability claims handle situations against negligent property owners.

Our trial lawyers are capable of taking on owners of apartment buildings, hotels, stores, restaurants, bars and nightclubs, gas stations, and other commercial properties. We take great care to investigate these cases in order to find out who was truly to blame. Whether the local manager provided improper maintenance or the corporate officials refused to spend money to repair a safety hazard, we will hold negligent property owners accountable.

We obtained a $1 million verdict against an apartment complex for failing to keep the balcony railing in safe condition, resulting in the plaintiffs falling and being severely injured.

Not All Premises Accidents Are Acts of Negligence

Just because a person was hurt on someone else's property does not automatically mean the property owner was negligent. In order to prove negligence, there must be evidence that the property owner knew or should have known about the safety hazard. If a spill occurred moments before a slip-and-fall accident, the property owner would not likely be liable. However, if the spill lingered for hours, the owner could be held accountable for negligence.
