Premises Liability

Proving Liability to Provide Compensation

Did you slip on an icy sidewalk or trip on a jagged walkway and fall? Did a box fall off a shelf at the store and hit you on the head? Or did you get injured while walking past a construction site?

You should not have to suffer the pain and financial stress of premises liability injuries. Our East Providence, Rhode Island, law firm can help prove liability so you can receive suitable compensation for your medical treatment, pain and suffering.

Establishing Enough Notice

Proving liability in premises accidents can be tricky. We must establish that the owner — or a person in charge — of a commercial establishment or private residence had enough notice of the defect that caused your injuries.

For instance, if you slipped on the floor at the grocery store due to a broken jar of mustard, we have to prove that store employees knew about the spill and did not remove it within a reasonable amount of time. Or if you slipped and fell on an icy residential sidewalk, we need to show that the owner of the home knew there would be ice and should have removed it.

Spotlighting Defects

Often, defects can cause premises liability accidents. Our law firm, led by Robert M. Brady, Attorney at Law, understands the importance of proving that defective materials or design violated building codes or regulations. We can help spotlight defects to prove liability.

Typical defects include, but are not limited to:

  • Walkway deviations
  • Jagged concrete
  • Improperly designed staircases
  • Lopsided wheelchair ramps
  • General building code violations

Evaluating Injuries

The extent of your injuries has a direct link to the amount of compensation you will need to pay for medical treatment. We will consider your short and long-term needs. To ensure that your settlement will last long enough to cover all of your medical needs, we use medical experts to fully evaluate your medical condition.

Medical specialists can provide their opinions on the extent of your injuries, the length of time until you are healed and the possibility that your injuries could be permanent. We want you to receive the best possible settlement, not simply the quickest.

Expert Testimony

We often use expert testimony to help prove premises liability. Whether a slip and fall or defective design, experts can help your case.

Engineers can do surveys and inspections to determine a violation of building or construction codes. We also have used a local weather specialist to prove a landlord had enough notice about snow and ice to prevent injuries.
