Slip & Fall Injury Attorneys
If you or someone you know has been hurt because of a property owner's negligence, you may be eligible to receive compensation for medical bills. This is known as "premises liability," which means property owners are responsible for maintaining a safe environment on their premises. When they fail to do so, they can be held liable for any injuries or damages that result from their negligence.
