Tenacious Westminster & Carroll County Premises Liability Attorneys Get Results
Advocating for your right to personal safety
Whenever you visit a movie theater, restaurant, retail store or other establishment, you should be able to expect adequate personal safety. A building owner has a duty to take reasonable steps to protect visitors from malfunctioning escalators and elevators, slippery floors and other hazards. If you’re injured as the direct result of a property owner’s failure to reasonably maintain his or her premises, you may be entitled to compensation.
The premises liability attorneys at Hoffman, Comfort, Offutt, Scott & Halstad, LLP offer a free consultation to discuss the details of your case.

Our Westminster products liability attorneys are available to help you, as well, should your accident be the result of a faulty product, such as an elevator or escalator.
