Portland premises liability attorney Greg Zeuthen represents individuals who have been seriously injured on someone else's property.
The law holds owners and occupiers of property legally responsible for accidents and injuries that occur on that property. The kinds of incidents that give rise to premises liability claims can range from a slip and fall on a public sidewalk to an injury suffered on an amusement park ride.
Premises liability includes all claims that can arise from:
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Unsafe buildings
Sometimes, businesses are aware of prior conditions but do not take the necessary steps to protect the public. On some occasions, a property owner is aware that the conditions of his property are unsafe yet does nothing to protect the public. Injuries can occur as the result of unsafe conditions that with proper care are often avoidable.
