Premises Crimes & Liabilty


There are many forms of dangerous premises. Carbon monoxide poisoning and even death can result from a defective furnace or other gas-powered equipment in a house, apartment, office, store, or other building. The experienced lawyers at Johnson Gray have effectively represented injured clients in many types of dangerous premises cases, and no two are alike.


Cases can develop from many situations: slip and falls on a slick surface, ice or poorly maintained carpeting; defects in roadways such as missing road signs, bad intersections or pavement defects, holes or uneven surfaces in parking lots, sidewalks or floors, unmarked drop-offs, ledges, culverts or holes, dangerous retail layouts or designs, including sharp corners and displays that may cause injury to children, or known security concerns. Construction sites, shopping centers, retail stores, private homeowners, cities, counties and other businesses may all endanger people invited to their premises.


Some of the types of cases we handle:
