Challenging Property Owners Who Fail To Address Security Risks
Large slip-and-fall settlements frequently make the news, educating individuals on their rights to compensation after a property owner fails to keep premises safe. Premises liability claims aren’t limited to slip-, and trip-and-fall hazards, however: Property owners are also responsible for taking steps to protect their customers, visitors and employees from suffering injuries caused by criminal activity.
If you or a loved one was hurt because a property owner failed to address security risks, you may be able to file a premises liability claim against the negligent property owner. For more than two decades, Callis Papa & Szewczyk, PC, has tirelessly represented individuals harmed in preventable accidents on commercial properties in Granite City and the surrounding area.
