Premises Liability 2017-08-18T11:31:43-04:00


If you have had a slip-and-fall, or trip-and-fall, on public or private property and the area was unsafe or ill-maintained, it is possible to receive compensation for your injuries.

Figliola and Romano is equipped to handle a number of personal injury claims, including premises liability and animal attacks. We will investigate the occurrence, search for all applicable insurance coverage and strive towards obtaining the sort of compensation that will meet all of your needs.


We have seen countless cases where clients have been injured due to defective walkways and parking lots because they were not properly maintained. Large cracks and potholes can cause serious damage, and it is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that his or her property is cared for. Negligence is not an excuse for your injury. Our firm handles all types of premises liability injuries, though many are associated with:

  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Defective stairs and handrails
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Falling objects and merchandise
  • Ice, snow and wet surfaces
  • Negligent security

If you were bitten by a dog or attacked by an animal, this can often qualify as a premises liability case. Depending on where and how the attack occurred, property insurance may cover your injuries. If you are concerned about a dog bite suffered by you or your loved one, call us at 401-289-0404 to discuss the situation and potential recourse.


To secure compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and personal suffering, it is our job to prove that a property owner had a duty to act on the situation and did not follow through on this responsibility. Our attorneys sort through security footage, speak to eyewitnesses and arrange for documentation of the scene, including photographs. We liaise with medical professionals, engineers and lighting specialists to assess the extent of the owner’s negligence and secure a successful result to your case.

We are experienced trial lawyers ready to litigate your case if necessary. Let us take care of your compensation while you take care of your injuries. To schedule a free consultation with one of our lawyers, don’t hesitate to¬†contact our firm online, or call us today.
