Washington DC Premises Liability Attorney
In the United States of America, when you own or manage a property you have a responsibility to keep the guests who visit you safe. It doesn’t matter whether this property is a private home, an apartment building, or a big warehouse store—the safety of your property is your responsibility.
This also means that if you suffer an injury because of bad construction, bad storage, negligent maintenance, or other issues, you have a right to demand compensation for your injury. If the property owner or premises manager doesn’t satisfy you, you can then take them to court. At Wingfield, Ginsburg, and Lipp, we represent people who have suffered from personal injuries, including those caused by unsafe locations. If you need a Washington, DC premises liability attorney, you should look us up.
Bring A Professional To The Negotiating Table
Most store and restaurant owners carry insurance that protects them from premises liability claims. Even homeowner’s insurance can cover these situations if the accident occurs on private property. The insurance companies cover the damages you’d ask for, but at the same time, they’ll try to reduce your claim settlement as much as they can. Insurance is a for-profit industry, after all, and every claim they pay comes out of their profits.
That’s why insurance companies are skeptical about most claims and employ some of the best investigators in the world to check claims out and look for any reason to pay less or avoid paying entirely. Very often they’re successful, and in many cases, it’s because the investigators and claims adjusters know the laws and know how to negotiate better than the average injured person. Because of this, you should get professional help from a Washington, DC premises liability attorney.
If you live in Washington, DC or one of its suburbs, you should contact Wingfield, Ginsburg, and Lipp. As personal injury lawyers, we know the laws and all the negotiating tactics insurance companies and corporations use. We can explain these laws and advise you on what you should do, and we can represent your interests even if you have to go to court to have your case heard.
Get Help In All Our Service Areas
Not only can we provide you with a Washington, DC premises liability attorney, we can also help with other areas of personal injury law. For example:
- Traffic accidents are unfortunately common throughout the Washington metro area thanks to the heavy traffic, and we can help you get full compensation for the damages you took to your body, vehicle, and other property.
- Dogs and other pets can sometimes cause lasting injuries or force people to take treatments against infections and diseases. Dog-bite laws make sure pet owners bear responsibility for what their dogs and cats do even if they never showed signs of aggression before.

- Sometimes an accident is fatal, and when that happens we can represent the survivors in a wrongful death case.
- Criminal courts prosecute thieves and attackers, but when victims want compensation for what happened they need to file a civil case and hire a personal injury lawyer.
