Premises Liability Lawyer in Portland, Oregon
Do you have an injury as a result of an accident on another person’s premises? A land or building owner may be responsible for your accident due to negligence and failure to properly maintain their premises. If a property owner’s failure is the cause of your injuries, discuss your case with me. As an experienced premises liability lawyer in Portland, I can help you determine and seek the compensation that you are owed.
I am prepared to represent you as your lawyer for premises liability cases caused by dangerous conditions, such as:
- Broken stairs
- Cluttered store aisles
- Falling merchandise
- Faulty wiring
- Insufficient security
- Lead paint
- Loose shingles
- Poor lighting
- Slippery or uneven floors
- Toxic mold
In order to win a premises liability case, you must show one of three circumstances: (1) the property owner caused the dangerous condition; (2) the property owner knew about a dangerous condition and did nothing; or (3) the property owner should have known about a dangerous condition and did nothing.
Whether you were an invitee, licensee, or trespasser on a property at the time of your accident, you may be able to seek compensation for your injury if the property owner legally owed you a duty of care. An invitee is someone that a premises owner invites for a lawful purpose (such as a contractor). A licensee is someone permitted on the property by the owner (such as a social guest). A trespasser is neither, but is still owed some duty by the landowner, although less than that owed to an invitee or licensee. For example, a homeowner cannot prepare traps to purposely injure a trespasser.
Get the professional help you need to properly investigate and pursue a premises liability claim.
Accidents caused by dangerous property conditions can result in serious injuries, such as concussions, traumatic brain injuries, back and neck injuries, serious cuts and lacerations, spinal cord injuries, broken bones and fractures, and chronic pain.

Business owners, landlords, and homeowners have duties to protect individuals from unsafe conditions on their properties. If a property owner’s negligence is responsible for your injuries, consult with me to determine what you should do to seek compensation.
