The Keramidas Law Firm team provides cost-effective representation for property owners, operators and tenants who have been sued for premises liability by those who claim injury from alleged defects on their premises or negligent acts committed on their premises, such as:
- Elevator, escalator and moving sidewalks
- Falling merchandise
- Food-borne illness and contamination
- Slip, trip and fall accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Negligent security cases
A significant portion of our legal practice is devoted to insurance defense work, so we are accustomed to protecting clients’ interests while working within an insurance carrier’s guidelines and expectations. We also provide direct representation to retailers, property owners, tenants, lessees and property management companies and are familiar with their business needs.
The issue of premises owners’ liability for injuries occurring on their property is one that requires careful investigation and legal analysis. We endeavor to provide our clients with an early case assessment of their exposure to liability so they can decide the most successful approach to proceed, whether settlement or litigation. We make sure our client’s interests are our first priority.
Slip and Fall Claims
We handle incidents resulting in injury due to the improper management of property or negligent attention to safety hazards. Such claims may also involve the failure to use visible warning signs to mark potentially dangerous areas.
These claims may arise from conditions at a place of business or another commercial or residential site. Injuries often result from:
- Inadequate floor / surface maintenance or cleaning
- Standing water
- Wet or slippery flooring or other surfaces
- Inadequate lighting
- Broken stairs
- Sharp edges
- Other defects
Inadequate security issues can also form the basis of a product liability claim against bars, entertainment spots and other businesses.
Construction Site Hazards
Slip and fall/premises liability accidents at construction sites can result from:
- Unmarked hazards
- Violations of OHSA standards
- Open elevator shafts
- Improper barriers
- Unsecured guard rails
- Unsecured supports
- Lack of proper communication
- Unsecured scaffolding
- Unmarked holes, openings or drops
- Failure to use visible warning signs
- Lack of railings or guardrail systems
- Failure to institute a safety-monitoring system
Premises liability claims can be pursued against a general contractor, subcontractor or other work site company.
