How Giordano Law Will Help You


Premises liability laws require that owners of both public and private properties maintain reasonable standards of care – like properly paved sidewalks and safe building conditions – that protect guests and tenants on their property from accident or injury.

If you have been injured on property that is commercially or privately owned, you may be able to hold the owner of the property responsible through a premises liability claim. To have a successful case, you will need to establish and prove the negligence of the property owner, which means that you will have to show that the owner of the property reasonably should have known about the unsafe and dangerous condition but failed to fix or to warn visitors about it.
