Premises Liability

At Volkema Thomas Miller & Scott, we assist people who have suffered injuries due to an unsafe condition on another's property. These types of injuries occur all too often, and our attorneys have the expertise to determine whether a property owner can be held liable for the resulting damages.

Property owners and managers have a legal duty to keep their premises reasonably safe for visitors. This standard of care may include routine inspections, regular maintenance, repairing dangers and posting adequate warnings of any known hazards. If the property owner either created a dangerous situation or knew or should have known of a dangerous condition and neither fixed the situation nor provided adequate warning of its existence, an injured victim may be able to seek recovery from the property owner.

Timing Is The Key

Gathering evidence promptly after an accident is often critical to proving your premises liability claim. The dangerous condition causing your injuries may be easily fixable, making it difficult to establish the level of danger and how long it was present. Volkema Thomas Miller & Scott is committed to uncovering all available evidence, consulting with experts and fully examining the accident site. Timing is especially important in cases where another patron created the hazard, such as another shopper dropping an item in a grocery store or another diner spilling a drink in a restaurant. In these cases, the owner may not be held liable if the hazard was cleaned or repaired within a reasonable amount of time. We independently investigate these claims to determine how much time elapsed from when the dangerous condition arose to the point at which you were injured.
