Fontana premises liability attorneys represent people who have sustained injuries on someone else’s property due to dangerous conditions. In California, property owners and those responsible for property maintenance and conditions have a duty to keep their premises safe for guests and visitors on the property. Common premises liability cases include slip and falls, dog attacks, negligent security, swimming pool accidents, elevator accidents, and escalator accidents.
Attorneys at The Hayes Law Firm, APC know that insurance companies are typically involved in dangerous property condition cases. Our attorneys work with insurance companies on a regular basis and are familiar with their settlement negotiation tactics. Their goal is to pay out as little as possible for claims, which means that unrepresented plaintiffs often do not receive the full compensation that they deserve. Injury victims should have a premises liability attorney who is experienced in negotiating with insurance companies to make sure that they receive a full and fair compensation.
In order to prove premises liability, the plaintiff must first show that the defendant owned, controlled, or was otherwise responsible for the condition of the premises. Second, the plaintiff must show that the defendant was negligent in the use or care of his property. And finally, the plaintiff must prove that he or she was injured as a result of the defendant’s negligence.
