PREMISES LIABILITY

Property owners are legally obligated to employees, visitors and customers to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe manner, or give warning of any unsafe conditions.  At Edwards Kirby, we handle personal injury and wrongful death cases, including those that involve:

 

  • Structural collapses of porches, balconies, or roofs
  • Unsafe construction zones, jobsites, or remodeling areas
  • Dangerous stairwells
  • Burns or electrocution caused by improperly placed power lines
  • Accidents on amusement park rides
  • Food-borne illnesses acquired in restaurants or fast-food outlets
  • Unsupervised or poorly maintained swimming pools or wading pools
  • Negligent security or surveillance resulting in violent crimes
