Under California law, property owners have a duty to keep their property free of dangerous hazards. If someone, such as an invited guest or a shopper, injures themselves on the property, the owner could be liable for damages.
However, as a practical matter, it is often difficult to show that the property owner should be held liable for injuries. They will have the opportunity to clean up after you, in a sense. This means that evidence that could show they were negligent may no longer be present. The property owner may also argue that you, the injured person, contributed to the injury through your own negligence. A skilled liability lawyer will aim to cut through any smoke screens and reveal the truth about the case.
You would need to present a few elements in a premises injury liability case to recover damages from the property owner.
The injuries you suffer because of the negligence of a property owner can be substantial. You may incur large medical expenses. You may miss a substantial amount of work and meanwhile have your usual bills to pay and children to feed. You will need to collect from the person responsible.
Our liability lawyers know how to make a strong case that allows you to be compensated for your injuries. We know what questions to ask and what kind of evidence shows that the property owner breached their duty to maintain a safe place for visitors.

Michael has shown exceptional litigation skills and has proven to have a high-level understanding of law in complex workers' compensation cases. I first came across his firm through some videos he posted and was impressed by his office staff and his paralegal's understanding of the law as well. Mike's a true advocate for the injured worker.
