Premises Liability in Washington, D.C.

Premises liability refers to a legal situation where someone is injured on property owned or maintained by someone else.

Property owners have a legal obligation to maintain their premises in a realistically safe manner. That means sidewalks and stairways should be free of snow and ice and in good repair, carpets and floors should be free of hazards such as tears and spills to discourage falls and the premises should be secured from possible criminal activities.

If an injury occurs on someone else’s property due to negligence, the owners or those responsible for the maintenance of the property can be held legally liable for that injury. Premises liability can involve falls on slippery floors, dog bites, swimming pool accidents, criminal assaults and injuries sustained in a fire.

If you or someone you care about has suffered an injury due to someone else’s negligence, the experienced premises liability attorneys at The Cochran Firm can evaluate your case and determine how to go forward with your claim to recover financial compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitation costs and your pain and suffering.
