Tacoma Premises Liability Attorneys
After suffering a fall on someone else’s property, our Tacoma premises liability lawyers will help you seek compensation. Property owners have a responsibility to maintain the space, keeping visitors safe. Whether you’re visiting a neighbor’s home for a party or frequenting a business that’s open to the public, the property owner has an obligation to offer a safe environment. When a sidewalk has broken sections or when ice and snow remain on steps, the possibility of a fall increases.
Some people are able to walk away without injury from a slip and fall, but others aren’t as lucky. You should not have to pay the medical bills for your injuries when you did nothing wrong. Should you be facing a long recovery or an inability to work after your injuries, you deserve compensation. Strong Law will fight for your right to receive an award.
Slip and Fall Accidents Can Result in Serious Injuries
Our premises liability attorneys in Tacoma understand that you might have some hesitancy about filing a claim after a fall. Perhaps you fell at a friend’s home or a relative’s home, and you don’t want to cause a rift. Maybe you have embarrassment about falling at your favorite store, and you just want the problem to go away. Unfortunately, if you suffer significant injuries because of the unsafe property, your pain may linger, affecting your life.
By bringing a premises liability lawsuit, you can receive compensation for your injuries and any lost wages. Remember, the property owner has insurance that covers situations like this. Our premises liability law firm is ready to help you receive the compensation you deserve for medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

What Is Premises Liability?
Premises liability refers to the responsibility of a property or building owner to maintain a safe area for visitors. If the property owner fails to repair or remove a hazard in a timely manner, and if that hazard leads to an injury accident, the owner is liable financially.
One of the most common types of premises liability cases occurs when someone slips and falls on another person’s property. For example, if the property owner fails to remove snow and ice from a sidewalk to the standards in the City of Tacoma Municipal Code, this could lead to a fall for a visitor. Our lawyers for a slip and fall accident then could file a premises liability case on your behalf, seeking financial compensation for your injuries.
Other situations that could lead to a premises liability case include:
- Tripping on a broken sidewalk
- Falling because of a broken stair
- Tripping over a torn carpet or unsecured rug
- Tripping over a box in a common walkway
- Bite from a loose dog
- Falling debris from an unsafe building or retaining wall
- Failing to provide adequate lighting to see hazards
- Failing to provide security to guard against attacks.
There may be situations other than these that could lead to a successful property injury claim. Our premises liability attorneys in Tacoma can help you determine whether you have a case.
Can Property Owners Avoid Accepting Blame for an Accident?
After you suffer an injury because of an unsafe situation on someone else’s property, the owner’s insurer may try to argue that he is not liable. For example, if the property owner had no ability to know about the issue ahead of time, your case will be more difficult to win.
With some property hazards, the owner must only place a sign in the area to warn visitors of a potential problem. Eventually, though, the property owner must fix the problem. A sign cannot remain in place indefinitely and absolve the owner from any potential liability.
