If you or a loved one has been injured because of a property owner’s negligence, you may have the right to file a claim. Property owners have a responsibility to maintain their property to prevent the existence of dangerous conditions that can cause injuries to patrons or guests. These are referred to as “premises liability” claims. It is important to understand that you are not going to get reasonable compensation in this type of claim without representation from an experienced personal injury attorney. Insurance companies are motivated to pay as little as possible, not to help you – no matter how friendly and sympathetic the insurance company adjuster may sound over the phone, he or she is not your friend.
Talk to our office about your case as soon as you can. There is no financial obligation. You pay no fee for our services unless we recover money for you. We handle all types of premise liability claims, including:
- Slip and fall
- Stairwell injuries
- Falling accidents
- Trip and Fall
After an accident, people often find themselves faced with serious financial problems, thanks to medical bills and lost paychecks. Insurance companies frequently try to take advantage of this fact. They will offer a quick settlement. That settlement may sound fair, but it may not end up covering all costs or constitute reasonable compensation.
We will take great care to see that you get enough to cover all of your costs – past, present and future. We carefully investigate all premises liability claims, including those involving tenants injured because of landlord negligence. Landlords have clear duties based on California habitability laws. Our investigation often reveals that habitability laws and building codes have been violated. This is a clear sign of negligence on the part of the property owner.
Just as landlords are responsible for keeping tenants safe, owners of grocery stores, restaurants and other commercial properties must maintain their premises so as not to expose patrons to unsafe conditions. We investigate these matters as well, getting all of the facts necessary to prove that the property owner was negligent and to get you the compensation you deserve.
