Oregon Premises Liability Cases Can Be Complex
Business owners and property owners have a legal responsibility to make sure their premises are reasonably safe for customers and visitors. If you slip, trip or fall on someone else's property, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. The business or property owner in some instances may be liable.
These "premises liability" cases can be complicated and difficult to prove. When there are complex legal and insurance issues involved, it's crucial that you have an experienced premises liability law firm on your side. At Zbinden & Curtis, a Portland accident lawyer can put experience and resources to work for you.
A premises liability case may arise if a tenant is injured in an apartment in which the landlord has failed to correct a hazardous situation. In other cases, commercial property owners may be responsible if customers are injured due to their negligence or their employees' negligence.

In some cases, property owners may be negligent in securing their facilities. For example, a parking lot that is not adequately lit may attract criminal activity.
