Premises Liability

Stores, offices, parks, and even private homes are subject to premises liability laws. Property owners have a legal obligation to maintain the safety of their premises to prevent injury to visitors, and if you are injured due to negligent property maintenance, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Slip and falls, dog bites, and pool injuries are just a few of the types of claims that fall under premises liability law. If you or a loved one is hurt because someone else was careless, contact Chanfrau & Chanfrau before you talk to any insurance company representatives.

Personal Injury

A personal injury lawsuit may be filed when a plaintiff suffers loss due to the negligent, careless, or reckless actions of another party. The injury might result from an accident involving a car, truck, or boat, or a fall on a walkway caused by a safety hazard. Some injuries, such as sexual abuse of a child, are especially emotional in nature. A personal injury lawsuit can provide financial compensation for a victim's loss and also serves as a deterrent to negligent behavior on the part of individuals and entities. In you have suffered an injury, let our experienced personal injury attorneys navigate the complexities of civil litigation while you concentrate on healing and rebuilding your life.

Product Liability

Every time you purchase a food item from the grocery store or buy a new toy for your child, you trust the product is safe for your family. Usually this trust is well-founded, but in rare cases, a tainted or unsafe product causes injury or even death. Product liability injuries can result from food, medication, household items, automobile parts, and more. Negligence can sometimes be traced to the product's design and manufacture, or to the packaging or marketing. This complex area of law requires the expertise of an experienced product liability law firm such as Chanfrau & Chanfrau.
