How Jacobs & Jacobs Handles Premises Liability Cases
Our lawyers are skilled in uncovering the factors that lead to premises liability accidents. We will search for evidence in maintenance reports, surveillance videos, witness accounts, and our own investigations to determine if negligence caused or contributed to your injury. We will pursue the maximum compensation for the losses you have suffered.
A large percentage of premises liability accidents occur in stores and their surrounding spaces, such as sidewalks and parking lots. Grocery stores are a chief offender with slippery surfaces and spills. Any location can be at fault, though, including apartment buildings, government buildings, private property, venues, and other premises. Injuries often involve:
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Accidents in parking lots
- Defective stairways
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Accidents in swimming pools
- Icy and wet surfaces
- Accidents caused by inadequate lighting
- Unmarked steps and dips
- Negligent security
- School injuries
- Untreated mold and asbestos
These types of injuries often lead to chronic pain and conditions that will require significant treatment, care and rehabilitation. We help to recover the damages needed to pay these bills and restore your quality of life. Contact Jacobs & Jacobs online or at 203-777-2300 to discuss your situation.
