Mount Vernon Property Accident (Premises Liability) Lawyer

Whether running daily errands, shopping at a local business, or going out to your favorite restaurant, the last thing you should worry about is sustaining an injury on someone else’s property. Unfortunately, not all property owners properly maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition. If you have been injured because of a dangerous condition on someone else’s property, or on public property, an experienced Mount Vernon premises liability lawyer can pursue compensation on your behalf in such a claim, known as a premises liability claim. 

At Lever & Ecker, PLLC, we are here if you need a premises liability lawyer on your side. Our highly experienced legal team has the resources necessary to investigate every aspect of your case and fight for the maximum compensation you deserve.
