Premises Liability

Washington DC Premises Liability Attorney

At The Law Office of Jeffrey J. Downey, P.C., we help clients recover financial compensation after being injured on another party’s property. These accidents, called premises liability accidents, can often leave victims seriously injured, in significant pain and unable to work. As our clients focus on recovery, our legal team works tirelessly to secure evidence, establish liability and argue for the maximum compensation available under law. We represent clients in Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland.

Understanding Property Safety Laws

Property owners — whether they operate retail stores, restaurants, hotels or any other type of business — are required to keep their properties free from dangerous conditions. This also extends to government bodies and private property owners. If these parties do not address and remedy known hazards, and an invited guest is injured on their premises, they can be held liable. Likewise, the law even extends to dangers that property owners were unaware of, but should have known about.

Taking On The Most Difficult Cases — And Winning

There are many complexities in premises liability cases, but our lawyers never back down from a challenge. In fact, we are recognized for addressing and winning the most difficult legal claims that other law firms may not be equipped to handle. We take swift action after your accident and dig deep into the evidence. This may include interviewing witnesses and store employees, analyzing police accident reports, or looking over cleaning and maintenance logs. Once we establish responsibility, our lawyers work with doctors, economists and life-care planners to determine the full extent of your injuries as well as the lifelong cost of care.

We are ready to help with any type of premises liability claim, including those involving:

  • Slip-and-fall
  • Trip-and-fall
  • Broken stairs or railings
  • Falling merchandise
  • Malfunctioning elevator or escalator
  • Fires
