Public spaces and private property alike are required by law to be constructed in a manner that ensures safe navigation for every individual that enters into the area. Premises liability is a term that describes a broad set of circumstances where an individual is injured or killed because of negligent design, construction, operation, repair or maintenance of a property or public area. At Domnitz & Domnitz, we specialize in representing the victims of premises liability cases in Milwaukee.
We’ve all heard of “slip and fall” cases and may have raised an eyebrow at the thought of someone filing a lawsuit due to their own clumsiness. But premises liability is serious business. In the construction of many public and private spaces, budgets are tight and corners are often cut, resulting in decreased safety for the visitors and inhabitants of those areas. The skilled attorneys at Domnitz & Domnitz feel that you should be protected from negligent business owners and others who may choose higher profits over safety for customers and visitors.
Premises liability isn’t just “slip and fall” though. A long list of circumstances fits into the category, including playground equipment injuries, falling merchandise, elevator, escalator, or staircase injuries, improper traffic patterns or poor lighting, food poisoning based on poor hygiene, equipment falls-and-failures, security-related premises liability, physical or sexual assaults in a public place, improper supervision or failure to warn, inadequate or missing signage, improper maintenance of doors, locks or gates, and more.
Claims in these types of circumstances can be difficult due to lack of evidence, the property owner’s knowledge of the danger posed by his property, or due to insurance issues. A specific protocol must be followed to prove liability and obtain a settlement, particularly against government entities. In addition, there are several protections for the people and entities involved in construction which must be considered. You’ll need competent legal representation in these cases, and no firm handles premises liability with the skill, concern, and tenacity of Domnitz & Domnitz. Call us today and we’ll get started fighting for you.
