Premises Liability

Holding Property Owners Accountable for Safety Hazards

premisesThe cornerstone of a premises liability claim is proving that the owner had knowledge of a dangerous condition and sufficient opportunity to address it. You need an attorney who can establish that the owner created or ignored a hazard or failed in a duty to warn others.

The legal team of Michael K. Bush and John C. Bush has achieved notable results for people injured on unsafe premises, including one of the biggest slip-and-fall verdicts in Texas. We can respond quickly to preserve the evidence critical to recovering damages.

Iowa Premises Liability Attorneys

You cannot automatically sue a property owner for any injury. There may be no viable claim if the safety hazard was obvious, if you were properly warned, or if you were trespassing or engaged in dangerous behavior.

Trial lawyers Michael K. Bush and John C. Bush have represented injury victims for more than 30 years and have secured many jury verdicts in excess of $1 million. We can determine if you have grounds for a premises liability claim against the ownership of a retail store, grocery store, restaurant, night club, apartment building or parking lot, or even against a homeowner or government entity.

We can explore your remedies for injuries from:

  • Slip-and-falls on slick floors or stairs
  • Trip-and-fall hazards such as raised concrete or torn carpet
  • Missing or broken railings
  • Falling merchandise or sharp protrusions
  • Negligent security resulting in assault

Find Out if You Have a Claim and What Your Case Is Worth

The crux of a premises liability case is whether there was an unreasonably dangerous condition, whether the victim could be expected to protect himself or herself, and whether the owner knew or should have known of the hazard.

For example, we recovered damages for a Hy-Vee supermarket patron whose back was badly injured when a chair broke beneath him. We established that the management knew the chair was old and unstable but failed to fix or replace it.

We have handled slip-and-falls involving serious and sometimes catastrophic injuries, including a $4 million brain injury case.
