Legal Claims Alleging Unsafe Premises
Our attorneys have handled a wide range of premises liability claims involving private, retail, commercial and industrial settings. Premises liability claims arise from a number of scenarios in which unsafe property conditions are alleged, including:
- Slip-and-fall accidents: These accidents may be caused by potholes and cracks in walkways, inappropriate slip resistance, untreated accumulations of ice or snow, and other structure and maintenance defects.
- Stairway accidents: Injuries in stairways often result from faulty railings, lack of treading on steps, inadequate lighting and other hazards.
- Negligent security: If a visitor suffers an injury on a property due to assault, robbery or other wrongdoing, property owners may be held liable for damages.
Premises liability claims gain strength when plaintiffs have evidence that the property owner or manager knew about the hazard, or should have known about it, but did not take measures to remove it. The cases we represent range from injured backs and whiplash to serious head trauma and death.
Our Providence law firm has the experience and resources to uncover the underlying facts in premises liability cases. We thoroughly investigate evidence from maintenance logs, building codes, surveillance footage and other sources to determine the causes of injuries.
