Representing You in Slip and Fall Lawsuits and Other Claims
When you are on someone else’s property, it is the property owner’s responsibility to ensure that the premises is safe. Whether you suffer an injury from a slip and fall as a result of poorly kept grounds, or suffer some other bodily harm that is outside of your control – but within control of the owner – you have rights. Premises liability attorney Paul M. da Costa will review the facts of your case to determine whether you qualify for compensation to cover medical bills and other losses. Premises liability covers a wide variety of injuries. Remember, when you get hurt because of someone else’s negligence, the law is on your side.

What Is Premises Liability?
When you are functioning responsibly, but suffer an injury on someone else’s property as a result of poor conditions, you may be able to recover damages for your medical expenses, as well as your pain and suffering. You may also be eligible to collect damages if someone else violates laws that protect you on your own property, or public property. Owners of businesses, private homes, and other properties are responsible for maintaining safe conditions. If conditions exist which may cause harm, it is the responsibility of the properly owner to ensure changes are made – not yours.
Types of Injuries Associated with Premises Liability
Because premises liability includes injuries that go beyond slipping and falling on someone’s physical property, you may feel uncertain whether the cause of your injury falls within this category. Injuries typically associated with premises liability include:
- Uncleared snow or ice on walkways
- Unconfined dogs
- Toxic fumes or substances
- Objects obscuring a driver’s view
- Violations of building codes
- Unsafe structural conditions
- Criminal activity
- Inadequate security
- Burn injuries
- Slip and fall
