Landowners / Hotels / Malls / Cafes / Supermarkets / Coffee Shops / Tenants
These types of commercial establishments owe their customers a duty to ensure that the property is maintained in a reasonably safe condition. From code violations, to liquid spills, to insufficient security, to inadequate warnings, there are many potential claims which could arise, and they are usually categorized as general liability/premises liability or negligence cases. I have defended many of these types of actions.
I have also worked with various companies to take proactive steps to implement systems which protect against such accidents in the future. Such policies and procedures include frequent inspections, proper training, proper staffing, and video surveillance.
