Personal Injury

If you have been injured on someone else’s property, whether it was at someone’s house, a store, the shopping mall parking lot, or on municipal property such as a park or playground, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

The law requires that everyone make their premises safe for the public. Some examples are as follows:

  • homeowners have a responsibility to remove snow and ice from their sidewalks and driveways;
  • stores need to ensure that they are well-lit and their floors are kept clean, dry and free of debris;
  • shopping malls need to ensure that their parking lots are kept in good condition and free of obstacles and hazards at all times;
  • municipalities need to ensure that their grounds are well maintained and safe for the public to use.

If these or any other conditions caused an injury to you, the law says that the host has to make it right by compensating you for your therapy, lost wages and pain and suffering. However, you have a limited amount of time in which to make a claim, as little as 3 months for municipal properties, and it is important that you act quickly to protect your legal rights.

Cowley & Company handles personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that our fee is a percentage of the compensation we recover for you and there is no money payable up front.
