Portland Premises Liability Attorneys
Our personal injury lawyers hold negligent property owners accountable
Someone slips on a wet floor at a supermarket. Another person is bitten by a dog. Someone is assaulted at a bar. These are all examples of premises liability accidents that can happen in Portland and anywhere in Maine. When a property owner was negligent, accident victims have the right to recover financial compensation.
At Jabar LaLiberty & Dubord, LLC, we’ve been fighting for the injured since 1979. We know the impact a premises liability accident can have on victims and their families in Portland. People are left injured and unable to take part in their normal activities. Medical expenses add up fast. If someone can’t work because of an injury, there is less money coming in.
Premises liability is the concept that property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises safe. This means they should be aware of any dangerous conditions on their property and take prompt action to address them. When they fail to meet this responsibility and someone gets hurt, they can be held liable for damages.
