Harrison Premises Liability Lawyer

Commercial and residential property owners owe their visitors and customers a duty of care to ensure their premises are kept up and safe. When property owners do not perform proper maintenance or repair on their properties, they may be found liable if someone is injured due to the condition of their property. Slips, trips, falls, and other premises liability accidents can cause severe injuries and emotional and financial damages. If you have been injured this way, you may have grounds to pursue a premises liability lawsuit for your injuries and other losses. 

Premises liability cases are complex, but a highly-qualified premises liability attorney can use their experience and skills to investigate your case and pursue a solid claim on your behalf. At Lever & Ecker, PLLC, our knowledgeable attorneys have over 65 years of combined experience successfully representing personal injury victims in Harrison and the surrounding areas.

Establishing Liability in a Harrison Premises Liability Claim

While life-threatening hazards can crop up unexpectedly, many go neglected for months or years. While minor maintenance issues may go unnoticed, any reasonable property owner should recognize and address specific hazards, such as broken railings, exposed wires, or poor lighting. To successfully establish liability in a premises liability claim, your attorney must provide evidence to support the following elements:

  • The property owner owed you a reasonable duty of care to keep their premises safe
  • The property owner breached the duty of care by acting negligently
  • Their negligence directly caused your injuries
  • You sustained losses from your injuries (pain and suffering, out-of-pocket expenses, lost wages, etc.)

If you have been injured in a premises liability accident, acting quickly to pursue justice is essential. Our experienced attorneys will begin their investigation into your case as soon as possible to collect vital evidence from the scene and crucial police and medical reports to support the lawsuit.
