Our firm handles all types of premises liability cases on behalf of seriously injured clients and the families of wrongful death or fatal-accident victims, including those involving:

  • Slippery surfaces and slippery walkways
  • Hidden store dangers, such as wet floors

Stores contain a number of hidden dangers.

All of these conditions can be cleaned up or resolved easily as well.
