Property owners and management groups are held to certain local, state, and federal standards.

How to file a personal injury claim?
At the base of any successful personal injury claim is a definitive form of proof that liability lies in the hands of the other party. As your representatives, Colony Law will seek evidence that supports your claim, including police reports, photos, video/surveillance, witness testimonies, etc. The elements of negligence are as follows:
- The defendant owed a duty of care to the plaintiff;
- The defendant breached that legal duty by failing to act as any reasonable person would in similar circumstances;
- The plaintiff was injured as a direct result of the defendant’s breach of duty.
