When you are injured on public or private property, it can be a very complicated situation. Consider the following factors:

  • Who owns the property? A thorough property search must be done to determine who owns and controls the property.
  • Is there a management company? If a separate company was hired by the owner to manage the property, there may be alternative insurance coverage for your injuries.
  • What caused your injury? The condition of the premises and preservation of the evidence is critical to preserve your future recovery. Whether it was a defective or dangerous condition, ice, water or other substance on the floor or sidewalk, or a security issue or code violation, it is essential that photos be taken and all evidence preserved without delay.
