  • Provide proper lighting
  • Maintain safe elevators
  • Install and maintain smoke detectors
  • Provide adequate security

Our premises liability law firm even represented people who suffer respiratory illnesses due to the demolition of a building. The debris was not hosed down and dust contaminated our clients’ work area. The building where our clients worked did not have a proper filtration system, and the air handling system was not properly adjusted to prevent the debris from contaminating our clients’ work space. We know how to prove fault in highly complex premises liability claims.
