Business And Property Owners Are Sometimes Liable
All business and property owners are legally obliged to maintain their property in a safe condition. An owner need not be aware that a dangerous condition exists; rather, it need only be shown that a dangerous condition contributed to your injury to seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages and long-term care. In many cases, an insurance company will automatically contest your claim in the belief that it will force you to abandon it or accept a lesser settlement.
The personal injury attorneys at Albert Buzzetti & Associates are experienced trial lawyers capable of arguing these types of cases at all levels of the state and federal courts. After a careful screening and case evaluation, we will never abandon your case, taking it to trial and appeals if necessary to secure compensation for you and your family.
