Durham Premises Liability Attorneys

Helping Victims of Dangerous Property Conditions

In certain situations, property owners owe members of the public a duty of care when they are visiting, using, or renting property. The Durham personal injury lawyers at Twiggs, Strickland & Rabenau represents plaintiffs who have suffered serious injuries or have lost loved ones because of a property owner’s negligence, carelessness, or recklessness.

Improperly Built, Maintained, or Secured Property

Improperly built or poorly maintained buildings expose visitors and residents to serious health risks, such as toxins in the environment, or serious physical harm that can result from slip and fall injuries. You are entitled to seek compensation if your injury or medical condition results from a property owner’s or manager’s negligence. If you are seriously injured, our attorneys may be able to help you file a personal injury claim.

Furthermore, premises liability cases relating to insufficient security are often the result of easily addressed safety issues including:

  • Faulty locks
  • Lack of surveillance
  • Dog bites

Slip & Fall

In you are seriously injured when you slip and fall on someone else’s property due to the property owner’s or manager’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering, lost wages, medical costs, or permanent injury.

Many slip and fall accidents could have been prevented by solid construction and proper maintenance of the property.

These accidents are commonly the result of:

  • Wet floors
  • Broken or uneven pavement
  • Dim or limited lighting
  • Obstructions in walkways
  • Holes or dips in the walking surface
  • Lack of warning signs

If you're lucky, you walk away from a fall with just a few bruises and hurt pride. But when you are seriously injured, and suffer broken bones, a brain injury, or spinal cord injuries as a result of someone else's negligence, you deserve to be compensated.
