Know Before You Act. The Simmons Law Firm prides itself on being approachable and being available. We are easy to talk to, we return phone calls. We encourage our clients to call us with questions or for legal opinions whenever they are unsure of how to proceed.
Despite a business or property owner’s best efforts, visitors, customers, and other invited guests sometimes get hurt on their property or in their stores every year. Most of the resulting accidents are minor, but a few are major catastrophes that cause death, disability, or serious injury. The Simmons Law Firm is experienced in vigorously defending businesses and property owners against such claims.
The Simmons Law Firm also understands that the difference between a favorable outcome and a devastating one are the policies a business or property owner has in place before the accident. While proprietors who open their doors to the public generally know that they have a legal duty to make sure their premises are free of avoidable dangers, they often do not realize that doing so is not enough, they must be able to prove this was done. We work with our clients to establish ongoing documentation procedures for maintenance and basic safety measures that can be used as part of a defense should the need arise.
