Premises Liability Litigation

Premises Liability Litigation

Todd & Weld attorneys are determined and devoted advocates on behalf of clients who have been the victims of accidents resulting from the negligence of property owners. "Premises Liability" cases stem from the failure of a property owner or others in control of property to keep the premises in a safe condition. For over 20 years, we have represented clients who have been injured in commercial buildings, on construction sites, in manufacturing plants, and at private homes.

Our attorneys are known for their unsurpassed preparation and relentless dedication to our clients. This is especially important in premises liability cases where technical testimony is critical in proving liability. The firm has developed relationships with highly-regarded experts who support our clients' cases in preparation for settlement and/or trial. Should a case proceed to trial, we use cutting-edge courtroom presentation tools that allow us to tell our client's story effectively and with compassion.

Throughout our representation of our clients, our lawyers are sensitive to our clients' concerns and spend the time needed to answer questions and keep our clients informed as the case moves forward.

Some of our representative cases:

  • An $8.4 Million settlement arising out of multiple deaths from a fire in a commercial building in Newton, Massachusetts.
  • A $3.8 Million settlement on behalf of a 21-year-old construction worker who fell four stories and broke his back and also suffered a cerebral stroke rendering him a paraplegic, as well as a paralyzed left arm.
  • A $900,000 settlement for a man who became brain damaged from Legionnaire's Disease which he contracted when inspecting tanks in the defendant's plant.
  • A $260,000 settlement for a student injured in an escape from a house fire.
  • A $235,000 settlement for a 6-year-old child who was attacked by a dog, sustaining gashes to the head and emotional trauma.
  • A $228,755 verdict obtained against an elevator company for a man whose knee was injured when the elevator door closed on it.
