Premises Liability

Background

From a “slip and fall” to a toxic tort suit, Neil Dymott attorneys are experienced in the complex area of premises liability law. We have successfully represented individuals, restaurants, retailers, corporate entities and insurance companies in various claims arising out of alleged physical defects or conditions of a premises.

The term "premises liability" generally refers to accidents that occur due to the negligent maintenance, or unsafe or dangerous conditions upon property owned by someone other than the victim. When an individual chooses to own or operate a store, business or restaurant, that individual has a heightened duty to customers to inspect the premises and maintain it in a reasonably safe condition. Whether an incident occurs on a stairway, in a supermarket, or other public area, injuries can be severe. Substantial medical treatment, inability to work or permanent disability can be a result.

Potential defendants need the oversight of experienced litigators in this area of law who advise clients of possible liability before an accident occurs and provides an aggressive defense if exposed. Our attorneys accomplish this by becoming well-versed in our clients’ daily operating procedures and provide an extensive investigation and strategic defense of all accident claims.

The attorneys at Neil Dymott have also successfully represented clients injured from falls, attacks and assaults and falling objects. To determine potential liability we investigate each claim and consider whether or not the property owner took necessary precautions to make the premises safe for public use.

Our extensive trial experience includes cases ranging from personal injuries to catastrophic injuries and from wrongful death suits to American's with Disabilities Act (ADA) claims. Whether the decision to launch aggressive representation in court or to mediate or settle a claim, we provide our clients prompt, cost-efficient strategies and reliable assessments of liability to determine the best resolution consistent with our client’s goal.
