Premises Liability Defense

Axley premises liability defense attorneys handle all varieties of “premises liability” matters. Most people think of premises liability as the simple defense of slip and fall cases. Unfortunately, premises liability defense can become much more complicated and potentially expensive. The term premises liability refers to the liability for injuries and damages to others arising from the ownership, possession or control of real property. In Wisconsin, premises liability is based on general principles of negligence and is controlled both by statute and case law.
