Experienced Premises Liability Lawyers
We Know What it Takes to Win®
No one expects to suffer an accident when we leave our home, much less an accident experienced on somebody else’s property and because of their negligence. A property owner has a duty of care when you step onto their premises. When this duty of care is not honored and you become injured, your mental, emotional, physical, and financial state can all be impacted.
Property owners commonly allege that they are not at fault for what happened, and they often argue two theories as to why they should not be held liable. The defendant may argue that they were not aware of a hazard or that they did not have enough time to discover the hazard and remove it. Another common defense to premises liability claims is that the plaintiff was in some way responsible for the incident. In either situation, the victim is blamed and manipulated to believe that this was somehow their fault. Don’t be deceived — the start to justice begins with a call to Montlick.

Common Causes of Injuries Sustained in Premises Liability Claims
Committed to Your Recovery
No matter where you are, we are just a phone call or message away.
Property owners and occupiers owe a duty to the public to keep their premises safe, and can be held liable if their failure to do so results in injuries, whether an injury occurs in a restaurant, store, or someone else’s home. Often, victims are left with severe injuries, costly medical care, lost income, disability, and pain and suffering when injured because of an unsafe condition on someone else’s property. When an injured plaintiff pursues a case against a property owner on the basis of their failure to keep their property safe, it is called a premises liability claim. Our attorneys handle cases involving all types of scenarios in which a property owner can be held accountable for negligence (some of which are particularly unique), but common causes of premises liability claims include the following:
- Slippery and/or wet floors
- Unmarked sudden drops in elevation
- Illusions without proper warnings
- Collapsing staircases, balconies, and outdoor patios
- Poor lighting
- Structural defects known by a homeowner
- Uncovered holes
- Building fires
- Gas leaks, including those that result in poisoning
- Failure to adhere to applicable building codes
- Unsecured falling objects
- Unattended heavy machinery
- Amusement park/carnival ride accidents
- Malfunctioning elevators/escalators
- Improperly aligned pathways and floors
- Inadequate supervision
- Unfenced swimming pools or other bodies of water
- Negligent Security, in cases where property owners fail to take the appropriate steps to protect customers’ and/or tenants’ safety, and someone is severely injured or tragically killed because of an act of violence.
Slip, trip and fall accidents in particular are common bases for premises liability claims. However, each premises liability claim is unique and can affect people of all ages. As noted above, they can arise out of many scenarios and incidents, whether they be failure of a property owner to clean a spill, warn of a high voltage area, or prevent heavy objects, such as light fixtures or pieces of ceiling, from falling on someone’s head. Property owners and occupiers are also responsible, by way of example, for covering holes in the ground, obeying structural building codes and local ordinances, warning of known hazards, and even inspecting their property for less noticeable dangers. In negligent security cases, our firm pursues cases in which victims are physically assaulted, raped or tragically murdered when property owners fail to maintain adequate security when they are aware of a high probability or likelihood of violent crimes.
