Injury or death caused by unsafe premises, improper maintenance, or lack of signage
Injury that occurs when the location is not safe due to improper maintenance or unmarked hazards are examples of Premises Liability. It is the body of law that makes the owner responsible when injuries occur on the property.
Many people think slip and fall injuries occur because of a danger such as ice, an unmarked curb, or a faulty railing. It can also mean a fall on a dangerous area not well-marked by cones, or a trip and fall over an unmarked hazard. One of our clients slipped and fell at a bowling alley due to improper maintenance. More than a few of our clients have been seriously injured in a fall on a slick grocery store floor.
Ensuring that parking lots, stairwells, and other areas are safe and well lit is the responsibility of the owner of the premises. Assaults – as well as injuries – can happen when premises are not adequately safeguarded.
Instead of assuming responsibility to help the injured person, the victims are often sadly blamed for being clumsy or inattentive.
If you are injured as the result of premises negligence, call the experienced attorneys at Campiche Andrews Horne PLLC.

If you filled out an accident report, alert us to that, too.
