Did you fall in someone else’s home or business?

Both home owners and owners of business premises owe a duty of care to their visitors and should carry liability insurance that can be called upon if injuries are sustained.

Often, those responsible for a business premises will insist that a system of maintenance and inspection was in place as required by the law and that they should not be held liable. Our team of experts will establish if this was the case or not.

We employ civil, mechanical, or biomechanical engineers to analyze your accident. Investigators will search for patterns of negligence and other key details. Together with these experts, your lawyer will build a strong case to obtain the maximum compensation possible for you.
