Fighting Careless Property Owners
A slip and fall or trip and fall lawsuit is called “premises liability.” Property owners-whether commercial properties (like hotels and grocery stores), city streets, or individual homeowners-are responsible for maintaining safe conditions on sidewalks, in parking lots, and around their businesses so that people can travel without a slip and fall or trip and fall incident.
Slip and falls or trip and falls can be devastating, resulting in torn muscles, broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and other serious injuries. The Dearie Law Group regularly handles premises liability cases, and has obtained exceptional results. For example, Founding Attorney Ray Dearie obtained a $6,100,000 jury verdict for a slip and fall victim who fell after a company left their parking lot covered in ice for several hours after learning of the icy conditions.
