Public and private property owners have a responsibility to maintain their premises in good condition to ensure the safety of visitors. If their negligence causes an injury, they may be held liable for their actions. Proving negligence requires the skill of an experienced lawyer, however.

We will work to determine liability and demonstrate that the property owner's negligence caused your accident.
"We understand that you need compensation to cover medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and related expenses. You can rely on our commitment to recovering the damages clients need to move forward with their lives." · Attorney Peyton Murphy · Contact Murphy Law Firm
Injuries Caused by Failure to Maintain Safe Property
Improper maintenance can result in dangerous conditions such as:
- Cracked sidewalks or pavement
- Pot holes
- Broken floor tiles
- Ripped carpeting
- Inadequate lighting
- Broken elevators and escalators
- Stairs without handrails
- Broken doors, gates or locks
Any fall can be a serious accident, especially if the accident victim hits his or her head. Traumatic brain injuries can cause a lifetime of medical problems. Back, neck and spine injuries are also common in falls, and may result in permanent disability. Injuries to joints or broken bones may be temporarily or permanently debilitating.
In the worst cases, a brain or spinal injury can cause wrongful death. Families who lose loved ones to wrongful death may be able to recover damages for funeral expenses, loss of the victims' future income, medical bills, loss of companionship and additional losses.
