Legal Support For Premises Liability Matters

Slip-and-fall accidents are among the most common causes of serious injury, resulting in concussions, contusions and bone fractures — and, in several hundred instances annually, death.

Victims often find themselves facing long, expensive recoveries. There are hospital bills to pay, as well as doctors' fees, prescription costs and the expenses associated with ongoing care. Those unable to work suffer a further financial setback in the form of lost wages.

Many of these accidents occur as a result of inadequately maintained premises. Often enough, property owners and site managers are legally at fault — indeed, they are required by law to keep their properties safe, and they stand liable when an injury occurs. At Richard C. Bardi & Associates LLC, our attorneys leverage more than two decades of experience when handling slip-and-falls or other cases involving accidents on someone else's property.

These matters, called premises liability cases, are often complex and require an abundance of evidence to show that the property owner's negligence directly caused a given accident. We are aggressive in pursuit of compensation for the injuries our clients have suffered.

The Property Owner's Responsibility

The owners of all types of properties, whether residential or commercial, have a duty to maintain their premises in a manner that keeps them safe for all visitors. When properties fall into disrepair, stairways, porches and sidewalks become unsafe; if proper security measures are not taken, accidents and injuries can occur. Property owners then become responsible for the losses suffered by victims.

Premises Liability Cases

Other types of property injuries can be the result of negligence, the failure to maintain control of an animal, or the intentional act or criminal conduct of another person. Regardless of the injuries you suffered, you should have your case thoroughly examined in order to determine what your rights are and who is ultimately liable for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering that you sustained. Our firm confidently handles all aspects of premises liability, including:

  • Negligent and inadequate security (resulting in assaults, rapes and other crimes)
  • Slip-and-falls
  • Dog bites
