What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is a legal concept that governs many cases that stem from a person getting injured while on someone else’s property. It refers to the duty of a landowner to prevent persons who are legally upon his land from getting harmed. This applies to a customer who visits a store, or a guest in a private home, or anyone else who is on another’s property with the owners implied or express permission. In very simple terms, it means that the person whose property an injury occurs on, may be financially responsible for the injuries, as well as ongoing issues from the injuries.

If you have been injured while on someone else’s property in the DC area, talking to the knowledgeable Washington DC premises liability attorneys at Cohen & Cohen, may help you to determine whether you have a premises liability claim that may entitle you to compensation.

Who is Liable?

Liability doesn’t just cover the owner of land or property. It can extend to renters and other parties with a legal right to occupy the. It does not matter whether the responsible party is an owner or a renter, s/he isn’t liable every time a person is injured on the property. Instead, for a property owner to be liable for an injury there must be some evidence of a defect or a dangerous condition on the property that caused the injury to occur.

If you think that any of the above may apply to your situation, getting the support of trusted Washington DC premises liability attorneys may help you to start on your way to recovery, and to protecting you and your family’s financial future.

What Conditions are Liable?

Any kind of condition that is unsafe or poses an unacceptable risk of harm to a person who is lawfully on the property can be considered a liability. Whether it’s a 15 foot deep construction pit, an uneven sidewalk, or spilt milk in a grocery store or an office lobby- the property owner has the duty to take reasonable steps to prevent the condition from causing harm to a person.

If you or someone you care about has been injured because of unsafe conditions on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation. Talk to experienced Washington DC premises liability attorneys to help you make an informed decision about what your next steps should be.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
