PRACTICE AREAS

Premises Liability

Bailey Johnson represents property owners and their insurers against allegations of premises liability claims.  The firm focuses on helping clients assert that they upheld the proper standard of care for the maintenance of their property.

Whether a slip and fall, dog bite, snow or ice hazard, or a defect in a stair; when an accident occurs on  property, there is a chance that the owner can be held liable for the accident damages.  Each state has unique laws and standards that govern who can be held liable and to what degree.  In New York, liability is based on one's occupancy, ownership, control or special use of the premises.  Landowners have a duty to exercise "reasonable care" under the circumstances.  Bailey Johnson works with their clients to investigate the allegations and develope the appropriate defense.  Regardless of insurance, the attorneys at Bailey Johnson strive to effectively and efficiently defend their clients' interests and obtain a speedy and equitable resolution to each case.
