Attorneys Fighting For Victims Injured On Dangerous Private Property

If you have suffered an injury in a mall, supermarket, doctor’s or accountant’s office, or other public building or at a private home, you may be entitled to compensation under premises liability law. The lawyers of Johnson & Monteleone, L.L.P. litigate premises liability cases in Boise and the entire Treasure Valley area. We can review the facts of your accident and, if we determine that you have a case, represent you in a lawsuit against the property owner. The goal is to obtain a fair compensation for injuries you sustained on dangerous premises.

Premises liability law applies to accidents that occur in many types of public or private places. Examples include:

  • Shopping mall
  • Department store
  • Supermarket
  • The sidewalk
  • Amusement or theme park
  • Driveway
  • Private home at which you are a guest

Cases alleging injuries on commercial properties (like stores and restaurants) are especially common due to the high number of visitors that go into and through these spaces.

Our Attorneys Can Assess The Liability Of Owners And Others

The liability of an owner, tenant or other depends on whether the injury was due to that person’s negligence. Another important factor is your legal status at the property:

  • Invitee: An invitee is someone invited to the premises by the owner or occupier. The law also considers that people shopping in a store are invitees.
  • Licensee: This usually applies to people at a private home or apartment. If the owner or tenant has invited you there as a guest, you likely fall in this category.
  • Trespasser: A trespasser is someone who has no right to be on the property.

An invitee or licensee who suffers an injury due to negligence on the part of the owner or tenant may be entitled to damages from the owner or tenant. A trespasser generally does not. Our attorneys can help you determine if you have a case, and we will strive to represent you aggressively if you do.
