Types of Premises Liability Lawsuits
Property owners (businesses, homeowners, or government entities) have a duty to provide a safe environment for people on their premises. Experienced Seattle premises liability attorney Matthew D. Dubin has recovered compensation for clients in a range of cases:
- Slip and fall on wet floors (supermarkets, retail stores)
- Broken or poorly constructed sidewalks, stairs, railings
- Escalator defects
- Animal attacks
- Toxic or hazardous substances
- Swimming pool accidents
- Snow and ice
- Inadequate security (robbery, rape, assault)
Investigating Seattle Premises Liability Claims
We respond quickly to obtain and preserve evidence of negligence and interview witnesses. Grocery stores, for example, usually keep a log of how often they clean the aisles. If the slip and fall happened immediately after a spill, the owner may not be liable. If they had neglected a leaking cooler, ignored a known hazard or failed to keep the log current, you may have a case.

Victims with a solid claim can collect for medical expenses and future treatment, lost wages, permanent injury, and pain and suffering. Most businesses carry general liability insurance (CGL), and the Law Offices of Matthew D. Dubin can usually obtain payment for reasonable accident-related bills, often without proving liability.
