Legal Responsibility of Property Owners
The owners of a property, including managers, engineers and janitors have a responsibility to provide tenants and visitors with a safe environment. This can include providing sufficient lighting, properly maintaining staircases, providing security and keeping the floors and sidewalks clear of debris or any other hazard. If the owner of the property has failed to keep their property safe and you have sustained an accident as a result, you may be entitled to compensation.
Our attorneys have vast experience in helping clients to determine if their claim against a property owner is valid. We do everything possible to help you get compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
