Slip-And-Fall And Other Premises Liability
Under the doctrine of premises liability, property owners can be sued if they created a dangerous condition, failed to fix a known hazard, or should have known of the danger through complaints or regular maintenance.
In 25 years of practice, personal injury attorney John Dufour has recovered settlements and verdicts in a range of scenarios:
- Slip-and-falls from spills, leaks or recently mopped floors
- Falls in stairwells from broken steps, missing railings or bad lighting
- Trip-and-falls from pavement cracks, cords or torn carpet
- Electrical shock from exposed wiring
- Assaults in hotels or apartments from negligent security
- Third-party lawsuits in work-related injuries
Committed To Your Full Compensation
We investigate promptly to preserve evidence of the dangerous condition or security lapse. We work closely with clients and their doctors to document the extent of injury and the lasting harm. You deserve to be compensated for any lost time from work and for your pain and suffering as you recover from your accident.
We have successfully sued stores, restaurants, bars, apartment buildings and other commercial entities, as well as property management and security firms that were negligent. We can also explore possible action against a homeowner or municipality, in which case there is a short window to file notice of a claim.
We Are Known For Service And Results
John Dufour will personally handle your claim, rather than passing you off to paralegals or junior associates. His experience and attention to detail are your advantage in these not-so-simple cases. We genuinely want to get a good result for you, and we know how to build a solid claim.
