Premises Liability Attorney in Roseville


Premises liability claims stem from accidents that occur on unsafe property. Some hazard, whether natural or man-made, ends up hurting a visitor who sues the property owner for not protecting them. The victim seeks compensation for a variety of losses, such as medical bills and lost wages.

If you’ve been injured on public or private property, please contact the Law Office of Brian P. Azemika today. We can review the circumstances surrounding the incident and determine your legal rights.

“If you have been hurt on commercial property, it is important to have an employee, usually a manager, fill out an incident report. If you are asked to sign it, you are entitled to a copy of the document.”

What to Do after a Premises Liability Accident

Accident victims often qualify for compensation when a property defect causes an accident. We recommend taking the following steps, which will increase the chances of receiving a settlement:

Document the hazard.

For example, if you slipped on a puddle, then whip out your phone and get a picture of the water. If you were burned by a malfunctioning appliance, then get a picture or video of the fire.

Speak to witnesses.

An eyewitness is a great asset in a personal injury case. Witnesses can help us understand what likely happened and how you were injured. Ask a witness for their home phone number or email address so you can contact them later.

Contact the property owner.

You want to report the hazard and your injury. Doing so will protect other people from the hazard. You can also get important information, such as the name of their insurance company, which is necessary for making an injury claim.

Go to the hospital for treatment.

Early treatment saves lives and helps document the seriousness of the accident. Follow all of your doctor’s orders.

Is it Possible to Obtain Compensation for My Case?

Yes. The amount of compensation you receive will depend on the facts. Some questions include:

  1. Who caused the hazard? If the owner created it, or if it was naturally occurring, then you have a stronger case for compensation than if you created the hazard.
  2. How long did the hazard exist? The longer it existed, the more likely a careful property owner would have found it and fixed it.
  3. Did you receive a warning to avoid a hazard? A warning could be in the form of a sign or a verbal warning. If you knew of the hazard, then you are partially to blame if you knowingly confront it and end up hurt.
  4. Were you invited onto the property or granted access? You will have a harder time obtaining compensation if you were trespassing at the time of your accident.
  5. Does the property owner have insurance? A business should have liability coverage to open their doors in California. A homeowner or renter could have insurance for accidents on the premises, as well.
  6. Did you contribute to your own accident or injuries? For example, you might not have paid attention to where you were going, or you ignored a warning not to enter the premises. If bitten by a dog, you might have been harassing the animal. Contributory negligence can reduce a settlement.
  7. Can you prove your economic and non-economic losses? We have succeeded at obtaining compensation for medical care, income loss, property damage, and pain and suffering. But the victim has the burden of proving their losses.
