Defense Strategies That Protect You

Property owners, renters, contractors or insurers can face serious risks when a visitor injures themselves on the premises. When these incidents occur, the lawyers at Wilbraham, Lawler & Buba work on a broad range of litigated matters pertaining to the possession and maintenance of property.

Whether it is a slip-and-fall accident, inadequate security, equipment malfunction, toxic substance, faulty construction, an ADA claim or another accident that led to an injury, our attorneys understand how to resolve premises liability cases involving:

  • Alleyways
  • Animal attacks
  • Building structures
  • Elevators and escalators
  • Entries and exits
  • Floor levelness
  • Lighting
  • Parking lots and parking structures
  • Sidewalks
  • Snowy and icy walkways
  • Sprinklers and other safety equipment
  • Stairs

An early, in-depth investigation of the facts of the case is a key component of a successful outcome to each client's case. We immediately begin conducting a thorough analysis of the facts and work quickly to preserve all evidence by obtaining photographs, statements from key witnesses, and the surveillance of the plaintiff. This approach has often led to dismissals and favorable settlements that allow our clients to move beyond this litigation in a cost-efficient manner.

Rather than engaging in an extensive and unnecessary discovery, we believe the best method is an early evaluation of each client's claim. If liability can be clearly determined, we work to minimize the value of case while working toward an early resolution. Our clients regionally in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware and West Virginia, as well as those located throughout the country have benefited from this approach since our founding in 1989.
