Many injuries occur in private residences. Most people understand that they may have the right to recover compensation if they are injured at a restaurant, grocery store or other retail establishment. Fewer know that they may also be entitled to compensation for an injury suffered at a private residence.

Homeowner liability claims are generally paid by the property owner’s insurance company.

We have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies. We can present a compelling case to the insurance company and, if necessary, to a judge and jury to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.Dangerous Conditions
If a property owner knows of a dangerous condition, he or she has a duty to repair it or warn visitors to protect them from harm. Dangerous conditions can include a wide range of issues, including:
- Broken sidewalks;
- Slippery floors;
- Dark staircases or other inadequately lit areas; and
- Unsafe swimming pools or hot tubs.
