Premises Liability

Property and store owners have a duty to keep their premises safe for neighbors, guests and customers. They also have a duty to warn you of potential hazards that could lead to injury. Whether the accident was caused by a wet floor, an unsecured rug or negligent security, if you have been injured due to a property owner's negligence you should be compensated.

At McCormick & Vilushis LLC, we have successfully represented thousands of people in personal injury cases. We believe property owners should be held accountable when they ignore safety standards, and we will work relentlessly to get compensation for our clients.

Types Of Premises Liability Accidents

Broken tiles, wet floors, objects on stairs, sidewalk deviations and potholes can all lead to an injury if proper warning is not given of their presence. These claims are often called "slip-and-fall" cases, although any accident that involves a tripping hazard can also be considered a slip-and-fall.

This type of personal injury claim can arise in many places, including:

  • Grocery stores
  • Gyms
  • Bathrooms
  • Elevators
  • Parking lots
  • Stores and offices

How We Help Clients Prove Their Case

Premises liability and slip-and-fall, like other personal injury cases, rely on the theory of negligence. To recover compensation for damages related to the accident, you have to prove:

  • The defendant had a duty to people coming on their property, or knew/had reason to know of a dangerous condition present.
  • They failed to take reasonable precautions or give a warning.
  • You were injured as a result.

When pursuing a claim for your injuries, having a skilled lawyer on your side makes all the difference. With decades of combined legal knowledge, we are familiar with both sides of the legal system and are eager to walk you through the process of filing a claim.
