Premises Liability


Property owners have a duty to keep their premises free from hazards and unsafe conditions for visitors. Property owners owe this duty of care to anyone who is legally on their property, such as employees, tenants, customers, clients and guests. If the owner of a property breaches that duty, then he or she may be held responsible under premises liability theory.

One factor in determining the outcome of a premises liability claim is the type of visitor who was injured on the property; It is important to determine whether the injured party was an authorized visitor who was invited onto the premises, or a trespasser. 


At the law office of Joseph A. Younes, we handle all types of premises liability claims, including dog bites, assaults, negligent security, slip and fall, trip and fall, school ground accidents, construction site accidents and restaurant liability.


If you have suffered injuries in a premises liability accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, including medical bills, lost wages, loss of consortium, property loss, emotional distress, and sometimes even punitive damages.
