Premises Liability

Serving All Areas of Maryland, Washington, DC and Northern Virginia

Washington DC Premises Liability LawyersProperty owners have a legal responsibility to maintain their property, which can include stores, parking lots, stairwells, warehouses, land, amusement parks, movie theaters, and even a private residence. When property owners fail to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition, people can get seriously hurt.

Although most people associate premises liability cases with slips and falls, a property owner’s negligence can lead to a wide variety of injuries. At Mesirow & Associates, PLLC, we help people who have been injured due to accidents in stores, apartment buildings, homes, and other properties.

If you’re struggling to pay medical bills and other costs associated with an injury on another person’s property, we can help.

Get Help for Your Premises Liability Claim

Residents of the Metro D.C. area and the surrounding communities are well aware of the hazards of walking around the city in the middle of winter. Icy, snowy sidewalks, slick stairs, and puddles of slush make it tough to get around. Most people take safety precautions, such as wearing boots and taking their time as they contend with severe weather.

No matter how careful you are, however, you can’t control how a property owner looks after his or her property — or fails to look after it. Broken sidewalks, iced-over stairs, and store entrances covered in slush can cause an unexpected and life-changing accident.

Other Types of Premises Liability Claims

Premises liability claims can also arise in other types of situations, such as around swimming pools, at camping sites, and in downtown parking lots. For example, owners and operators of public and private swimming pools and facilities have an obligation to properly maintain their pools and the areas around the pool.

Depending on the circumstances of the case, they may also have an obligation to install fencing or hire lifeguards. A slip and fall on a wet surface surrounding a pool, or a drowning accident caused by a lack of supervision can give rise to a premises liability claim.

At a campsite, amusement park, or other facility, property owners are held to the same maintenance standards as other property owners in the same industry. This means that they must use the same care as reasonable property owners in their area and in the same type of environment.

For example, a property owner who operates scenic tours in a mountainous region will likely be held to a different standard of care than a property owner who conducts white water rafting excursions.

Owners of apartment buildings and property owners who maintain properties in high-crime areas also have a responsibility to ensure that their properties are safe.

For example, property managers and owners must install working locks on doors and windows, and they must restrict access to interior doors that lead to apartment units. In some cases, a property owner has a duty to hire security professionals or to install surveillance cameras.

Client Reviews
John is phenomenal! His staff immediately took me under their wing and he truly became like family to me. A couple of years ago I was involved in an animal attack that truly changed my life. They maintained integrity and humanity in every way to properly navigate my ordeal. I cannot recommend this firm enough, hands down. Tiana Mapp
John is a gem and I'm tremendously glad that I connected with him. Wanting to put my accident behind me ASAP and minimize time and energy spent toward that end, I made the rookie mistake of attempting to settle on my own. I eventually reached an impasse with the insurance company but simply couldn't bring myself to accept their settlement offer. Drained by all the back-and-forth at this point, I didn't thoroughly research options (which is, ironically, a big part of my reason for not obtaining a lawyer in the first place - there are an overwhelming number of personal injury lawyers in the area!) and simply contacted the first lawyer from whom, simply put, I got a good Google vibe - enter John. That positive impression was immediately confirmed via our first phone call (for which he made himself available that very same day) and further cemented throughout subsequent meetings. John exceeded expectations in every metric, netting me over double the initial offer despite my less-than-ideal handling of everything at the outset. He answered every question I had with ease and honesty and was always available and communicative throughout the process. John is personable, compassionate, transparent, and very good at what he does! I can't recommend him highly enough - hope to never need him again but if so, he will now be my first text!
