Sacramento Premises Liability Attorney
Every day, dozens of people throughout the state are injured by some dangerous condition on property of which they were unaware. People fall and injure themselves in grocery stores, banks, hospitals, as well as out on the sidewalk or in the post office.
If you were injured on someone’s property, you might have a premises liability claim. This is a type of personal injury claim which allows injured victims to seek compensation for injuries suffered as a result of a property owner’s negligence. Contact the Law Office of Brian P. Azemika today to learn more.
Types of Premises Liability Accidents
In addition to your typical slip and fall accident or dog bite, our clients have been injured in a variety of accidents related to the property, such as:
- Amusement park accidents
- Hotel or motel accidents
- Elevator or escalator accidents
- Food poisoning
- Swimming pool and hot tub accidents
- Falling trees
- Electrocution injuries
- Construction accidents
In many of these cases, a dangerous condition of the property caused the injury. For example, spilled liquids in the grocery store aisle could cause a customer to slip, or defective scaffolding could fall on a sidewalk, injuring a member of the public. The hazard is usually man-made, but it could be naturally occurring. For example, ice could form after a storm near the door to a store, which sends customers tumbling if the owner fails to take steps to prevent the existence of the dangerous condition.
Premises Liability Claims & Big Box Retailers
Large companies aggressively fight off premises liability claims. Often, these big box retailers have loss mitigation departments which do nothing but handle legal claims against their business. An entire team of insurance adjusters, lawyers, and paraprofessionals is dedicated to saving the big box retailer money by rejecting as many claims as possible.
This is the sad reality. If you were injured, you need an experienced attorney by your side. Many defendants will try to place blame for the accident on the victim. If they are successful, they can radically reduce the amount of compensation they pay or possibly avoid taking responsibility altogether.

Brian Azemika fought for me when others thought my case was a lost cause. Brian Azemika took over my case with only a few weeks to prepare prior to trial. His knowledge and expertise showed in how he prepared me for my testimony at trial. He also had a great presence in the courtroom and really connected with the jury during the entire trial. He did such a great job in the eyes of the jury that many of them approached him after the trial and asked him for his business card. Thanks to Mr. Azemika, the jury returned a verdict for $400,000.00, which was amazing since the settlement offer from the insurance company was for only $45,000.00 on the first day of trial. I am so glad that Brian Azemika was my trial attorney.
