Premises liability is a term used to describe the legal responsibility that a landowner and tenants of a property have for injuries and accidents that occur on their property. Such claims are commonly known as slip and fall accidents but may also result from equipment used on property, dog bites and other forms of accidents that occur on ones premises.

Crivello Carlson has been defending premises liability claims since its inception in 1946. We have mounted a vigorous and successful defense against a wide range of premises liability claims including, but not limited to, trip and fall, negligent security, wet floors, poor maintenance, construction site accidents, falling equipment, explosions, third party criminal attacks, inadequate parking garage security, slip and fall, and use of force issues as they relate to premises liability. We have represented such clients as commercial property owners, property managers, private security companies, contractors, retail stores, parking garage operators, maintenance companies, and municipalities. Our experience in these areas extend from basic negligent issues to complex issues involving a broad horizon of claims such as intentional torts, vicarious liability and control issues.
