Premises Liability

Slip and Fall Accidents

Property owners have an obligation to keep their land and buildings reasonably safe for the people who venture onto and into them. Whether a property owner is a grocery store or private homeowner, any unsafe property condition that causes an individual harm can lead to a premises liability claim.

Dangerous Property Conditions

As Iowans, we have all experienced an unexpected slip on some icy pavement. In most cases, we walk away with a few bruises and some wounded pride. For some victims of dangerous property conditions, however, a fall can result in devastating injuries. Slip and fall injuries can include anything from broken bones and concussions to fractured hips and traumatic brain injuries. If you have been seriously hurt due to a property owner’s negligence, you need an attorney who knows how to obtain the maximum compensation available for your injuries.
