Colburn Law

Kirkland Premises Liability Attorney

Private homeowners, landlords, shop owners, and other property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises safe and secure. Any hazards can put visitors at risk of serious injury, and any accidents that occur on their properties can put owners at risk of liability.

If you suffer injuries due to a property owner’s negligence, contact Colburn Law as soon as possible. Our Kirkland premises liability attorney can help you hold the property owner liable for his or her actions, helping you secure compensation through a slip and fall lawsuit or insurance claim.

  • Our firm has recovered millions of dollars for our clients, including a $200,000 settlement from an apartment complex that failed to maintain its premises. We are dedicated to securing maximum compensation.
  • Our firm assumes the risk for your lawsuit. If we do not win compensation in your case, you do not pay legal fees.
  • We understand that travel can be difficult after a slip and fall. Your Kirkland personal injury attorney will meet you in an alternative location for your conveniences, such as your home or hospital room.

Examples of Premises Liability Claims

Property owners must keep their premises in reasonably safe condition, respond to hazards within an appropriate amount of time, and provide proper warning to visitors about potential dangers. If a property owner ignores or fails to reasonably discover a hazard, you can suffer an injury due to his or her negligence—and you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim against him or her.

At Colburn Law, our Kirkland premises liability attorney handles premises liability claims that involve multiple types of hazards. You may be eligible for a lawsuit if your accident involved any of the following:

  • Falling objects or debris
  • Poor lighting conditions
  • Unattended spills
  • Inadequate security services
  • Rotten or unsafe stairs, porches, or balconies
  • Defective, uneven sidewalks and stairways
  • Dangerous escalators, elevators, or walkways
  • Unsafe or poorly designed parking garages or parking lots
  • Exposure to toxic substances

How Long Do You Have to File a Premises Liability Claim in Kirkland?

After a slip and fall in Kirkland, it is important to act quickly. Washington has a law known as the statute of limitations that sets deadlines for various civil lawsuits. If you file your lawsuit after your specific deadline passes, the court will most likely dismiss your case and you will not be eligible for compensation.

You have three years from the date of the slip and fall to file a premises liability lawsuit in Washington. There are some exceptions to this rule, but they are not common in slip and fall cases. Speak to your attorney at Colburn Law as soon as possible to determine your filing deadline.
