St. Louis Premises Liability Lawyer
Premises liability involves the responsibility of property owners and managers to provide reasonably safe premises for visitors. This means that both private and public property owners must maintain awareness of any safety hazards their premises poses to visitors, customers, patrons, clients, or service providers who enter for social or business purposes. These owners and/or managers owe you a duty of care to remedy unsafe, defective, or neglected conditions on their premises promptly or provide warnings to you until or while the condition is being remedied. Property owners who violate this basic safety protocol may be held responsible for accidents that occur on their premises. Premises liability claims can be filed against them to seek damages.
Labovitz Law Firm provides seasoned and dedicated legal representation. Premises liability claims are generally complex matters in which you will have to prove that the hazardous condition that caused your accident directly led to the injuries you sustained. You will likely be fighting against the large resources of a corporate insurance company. Because of this, you will need skilled professional help in making your claim. Attorney Brent Labovitz is backed by more than a decade of experience resolving claims and lawsuits of this type.

Your injury claim against the negligent property owner/insurer can seek damages similar to other personal injury claims.
