Premises Liability & Dangerous Property Conditions

At the Law Office of William D. Nelson, we devote a significant portion of our personal injury practice to representing victims of dangerous property conditions. Our Tucson premises liability attorneys have successfully handled claims against individual property owners, businesses, government entities and public and private institutions, always with the goal of seeing our clients receive maximum compensation for their injuries.

Examples of Dangerous Property Conditions

Under premises liability laws, property owners, managers and tenants have a legal duty to keep their property safe, including remedying physical hazards such as spills, unstable shelving or flooring, broken stairs and other potential dangers. If any hazards remain after regular inspection and maintenance, the person in control of property must provide a warning for others. When a property owner fails in these responsibilities, victims injured because of the dangerous condition may seek recovery for their injuries in a premises liability action.

A Tucson premises liability lawyer from the Law Office of William D. Nelson, P.C. can assist across the wide variety of premises liability claims, including cases involving:

  • Slip and fall accidents and trip and fall accidents
  • Fallen merchandise, debris or hanging hazards
  • Slippery or obstructed floors or aisles
  • Uneven flooring
  • Electric shock resulting from exposed electric wiring
  • Damaged steps and handrails
  • Poorly lit stairwells
  • Unsafe balconies and balcony railings
  • Sidewalk or roadway defects
  • Unsupervised swimming pools
  • Use of toxic building materials
  • Dog bites and animal attacks

Adequately maintaining property also involves taking reasonable measures to ensure the overall safety of the premises from a standpoint of criminal activity. Please see our negligent security page for more information about claims involving assaults, attacks and other crimes facilitated by poorly secured premises. We also have significant experience handling premises liability claims arising from preventable injuries to the disabled.

Our attorneys work diligently to build strong cases for our clients, utilizing experts when necessary to investigate and substantiate claims. For example, in one case involving the collapse of a large tree, we retained a tree expert who discovered that the resort responsible for maintaining the tree failed to ensure its stability. When the tree inevitably fell due to a compromised root system and careless pruning, our client suffered a severe back injury. We advanced costs associated with consulting the expert, and the case settled.
