When you visit someone else’s property—whether as a customer at a retail store, an employee at your place of work, or an invited guest at someone’s home—you expect a certain degree of safety. Property owners are required by law to ensure that their premises are reasonably safe and well-maintained, as well as free of any known hazards that could cause harm to someone else.
If you were hurt on someone else’s property, and you believe the property owner knew about or should have known about the dangerous condition that caused your injury, you could have grounds for a premises liability claim. Reach out to The Cassisi Law Firm to learn more about your legal rights, including your potential right to recover financial compensation for your damages.

Premises liability is an area of personal injury law that states that property owners are liable for injuries and harm suffered due to dangerous conditions on their properties.
To have grounds for a premises liability claim, you must be able to prove the following elements:
- You were lawfully on the property
- A dangerous condition existed on the property
- The property owner knew about or should have known about the dangerous condition
- The property owner failed to take reasonable measures to remove, repair, or warn others of the dangerous condition
- You were injured
- The dangerous condition was the proximate cause of your injuries
- You suffered measurable damages
Our attorneys can work with you to understand exactly what happened and determine whether you have a case. If so, we will immediately begin an exhaustive investigation into the accident and gather supporting evidence, such as your medical records, to build a strong claim on your behalf.
When property owners fail to properly maintain their premises or fail to repair or remove dangerous conditions promptly, innocent people can be severely hurt. Victims often sustain catastrophic injuries, such as broken bones, burns, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and accidental amputation. Often, they will not only need extensive medical treatment but will also be unable to work while they recover. In severe cases, disabled victims will be unable to ever work again.
With an attorney on your side, you can fight to recover compensation for your economic and non-economic damages, including but not limited to:
- Medical bills
- Future medical costs
- Lost income/wages
- Future lost earnings
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
