Attorneys at our Kent, Washington, law firm are well versed in the legal issues that arise in premises liability cases. For example, each type of defendant in a premises liability case may have a different duty of care and thus a varying level of liability for injuries caused by their property. This makes some cases stronger than others, even though some of the facts may be the same. Our lawyers can determine whether you have a claim.
Examples of our cases
We seek full compensation for clients who have suffered injuries because of defects on the liable party’s property. Our cases include those involving:
- Broken sidewalks
- Broken lights
- Weak stair rails
- Inadequate security
- Improperly maintained premises
Washington is not a strict liability state in premises liability matters
Negligence plays a role in many of these cases. However, because Washington is not a strict-liability state in such cases, the duty of care owed by the property owner varies. Our lawyers need to analyze all the facts of each case to develop a strategy that can result in maximum compensation for our injured client. Our attorneys know the different standards that apply in each situation.
Different defendants require different legal strategies
Our cases have involved defendants such as landlords, schools, college dormitories, state-owned ferries and many other types of defendants. In each instance, we investigate thoroughly and determine the best way to approach the case under applicable Washington law.
