Proving The Owner Is Liable
Premises liability applies to commercial and residential properties. We have brought claims against owners of apartment buildings, office buildings, grocery stores, department stores, bars, restaurants, parking garages, gas stations, utility companies and other businesses, as well as homeowners.
Under premises liability law, the owner or possessor (or a third party that maintains the property) may be held responsible for injuries that occurred on the promises. We have to show that ownership/management failed to keep the property in a safe condition or failed to adequately warn about dangerous conditions, and that they knew or should have reasonably known about the danger.
The Experience To Stand Up For Your Rights
Insurance companies retain defense attorneys to fight premises liability claims. The defense will often, if not always, argue that the property did not have notice (knowledge) of the dangerous conditions, thereby downplaying their responsibility and the potential value of your case.
This is why you need someone on your side to stand up against the insurance company. Attorney Mason Rashtian has more than 20 years of experience in personal injury litigation. In fact, he formerly worked as a defense attorney so he knows their tactics and how to counter them. He has litigated a wide range of cases, from slip-and-falls to an electrocution incident from a downed power line.
