Premises Liability

In today’s litigious world, one in which juries are capable of handing down multi-million dollar awards, you need an attorney with a proven track record in your corner. Defending and paying out on meritless claims should not be “the cost of doing business.” From the beginning, it is critical to determine whether a claim has merit and if so, how to best defend the claim and mitigate any damages. Choosing the right lawyer to protect your interests, as soon as at all practical, is critically important.  Although the stereotypical premises liability case is the proverbial ‘slip and fall’, Campbell Trial Lawyers are often called on to defend clients in cases involving far more serious injuries to people, particularly accidents resulting in paraplegia or death, as well as substantial damage to property.

Demonstrated Experience

Our clients include commercial property owners, managers, agents, contractors and tenants against claims of alleged negligence on premises ranging from restaurants and hotels to construction sites; retail stores to industrial plants; healthcare facilities to airports. Our firm regularly works on behalf of insurers in premises liability cases.

Accident Investigation
Post accident statements, the condition of the premises, retention of video surveillance and other post accident evidence can be fleeting. However, the pre-suit accident investigation can make an enormous difference in uncovering information vital to the defense of the case. Our services include immediate response and investigation of accidents, especially those involving catastrophic injuries or the potential for large damage awards.

Personal Injury Claims
Personal injury accidents are no long limited to the proverbial ‘slip and fall’ accident. Unfortunately, injuries occur from a wide variety of accident mechanism, many of which are entirely unforeseeable to the premises owner. Flooring, stairs, risers, railings, ceiling, clearances and building code are often issues in even the less complex premises liability cases. Campbell Trial Lawyers have given presentation on and are on the forefront of examining the relevant issues and defending premises owners in personal injury cases.      

Violent Crimes and Premise Security Claims
In greater numbers, claims are being made against premises owners based on injuries that were caused by assaults, batteries and other criminal activities on the premises. Often the claims will allege that owners either not take steps to mitigate known criminal activity and/or that security was inadequate on on the premises. Campbell Trial Lawyers have given presentation on and are on the forefront of defending premises owners in claims arising out of violent crimes.

Workplace Accidents
When an employee or visitor is injured in the workplace, special rules exist to protect that injured person. Owners of the workplace needs lawyers to protect their interests who are familiar with these rules and who can determine if a claim is bona-fide, in whole or part. Campbell Trial Lawyers are knowledgeable about the Code of Massachusetts Regulations, OSHA and other workplace rules that may affect a claim against your company.
