Dedicated California Premises Liability Attorneys Represent Accident Victims
Caring slip and fall lawyers help clients in the Sacramento area seek compensation
Commercial and residential property owners and managers have a duty to maintain their homes, stores and general grounds in good repair — or to properly warn visitors if there are known hazards to be avoided. When property owners fail to do so and you suffer harm as a result, you may have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. At Andrew E. Bakos & Associates, P.C., our injury attorneys understand the stress that these accidents cause victims. We draw on experience representing people in the Sacramento area and throughout California who’ve been injured on someone’s property due to the owner’s negligence to seek the damages you deserve. Our knowledge of California premises liability laws helps us to hold property owners accountable for your harm.
Compassionate premises liability firm helps you prove negligence
When we represent you in a premises liability case, we must be able to prove that the property owner was negligent — that the owner, whether a person or business, failed to use reasonable care maintaining the property safely for visitors. Visitors are those such as invitees and licensees who have a legal right to be on someone else’s property. Not all such accidents, however, automatically make property owners liable: you must be able to show that the owner knew or should have reasonably known that unsafe conditions existed and failed to remedy them, and that those conditions were the cause of your injury. When you seek our help, you can trust that we will guide you through each step of your case to advance your claim.
Responsive attorneys advise clients injured in a range of accidents
Slip and fall accidents are the most common type of premises liability cases. They can be caused by a wide range of hazardous conditions, such as wet floors, cracked pavement, uneven steps, and snow- and ice-covered sidewalks. Falls on these surfaces can result in injuries that range in severity from cuts and bruises to broken bones and head trauma. If you’ve slipped and fallen on someone’s premises, we will seek to hold the property owner accountable for the harm you’ve suffered so you can recover with peace of mind.
Premises liability suits may also be brought for other types of property accidents, involving injuries caused by:
- Inadequate security
- Unsafe structures
- Building collapses
- Falling objects
- Construction zone conditions
- Elevator or escalator failures
- Exposure to toxic substances
- Dog bites
For any injuries suffered on someone’s premises in which the property owner can be held liable, we will seek full, fair compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other relevant damages.
Committed advocates take a detailed approach to your case
To succeed in your case, we undertake a full investigation of the circumstances behind your accident. That may include:
- Consulting medical professionals to verify the extent of your injuries and the cost of recovery
- Photographing the scene of your accident and preserving other evidence
- Researching whether anyone else has been injured in the same location, or if anyone has previously complained about the property’s condition
We have helped clients file suit against property owners, tenants, landlords, security guards and companies, management companies, and other at-fault parties in premises liability claims. In all cases, you can count on us to structure sound arguments designed to help you receive the maximum compensation possible.
