Premises Liability

A premises liability claim can be brought against a property owner when someone is injured as the result of an unsafe or inadequately maintained condition of the property. Business and property owners are required by law to maintain reasonably safe premises; when they negligently fail to do so, the owner is legally responsible. Accordingly, establishments such as supermarkets, bars and restaurants, swimming pools, stadiums, shopping malls, and hotels are all required by law to maintain safe property conditions. Premises liability claims that can arise include:

  • Slips and Falls
  • Drowning Incidents
  • Tripping Hazards
  • Sidewalk Defects
  • Falling Objects
  • Toxic Substances
  • Inadequate Security
  • Gas Explosions
  • Electrical Injuries
  • Amusement Park Accidents
  • Water Leaks and Flooding

Premises liability accidents can result in severe injury and even death. The attorneys at Feldman Shepherd have handled many premises liability claims and have recovered millions of dollars for clients. For example, our premises liability team helped secure $40.5 million for the survivors of an apartment building fire that killed six residents and injured several others. Our attorneys were also involved in the Pier 34 lawsuits filed on behalf of 46 plaintiffs injured or killed when the pier collapsed into the Delaware River. Our premises liability team also recently won a $4.25 million settlement against a hospital for supplying a 69-year-old man with a wheelchair that lacerated his leg, leading to complications that caused his death.

By handling each claim as a unique case, the attorneys at Feldman Shepherd have been able to obtain multimillion premises liability verdicts and settlements in both state and federal courts. Our attorneys have successfully pursued claims against state run parks and public spaces, privately owned buildings, and commercially owned businesses. We are experienced and compassionate professionals. Our first priority is your best interest. If you’ve been injured on someone else’s premises and you need help getting the compensation that you are entitled to, you can trust the premises liability attorneys at Feldman Shepherd to help you achieve results.
