Premises Liability Law Firm Defending Businesses Against Lawsuits

Promptly and thoroughly investigating your case

Property owners, whether commercial or private, have a responsibility to provide reasonably safe premises to those entering them. But as diligently as property owners try to inspect their property to prevent injuries, accidents happen. When property owners are sued by patrons or individuals who have been injured in slip and fall accidents, by falling merchandise or through any other incidents on their premises, an experienced premises liability defense attorney can help explain and protect their rights.

At Stammer, McKnight, Barnum & Bailey LLP, we thoroughly investigate and research all facts associated with an alleged accident. To protect your interests, our attorneys work diligently to find out who, if anyone, is liable for the injuries that occurred on your property.

Experienced, focused and persistent insurance defense firm

Our attorneys have successfully represented individuals, retailers, landlords, restaurants and insurance companies in claims arising out of alleged unsafe premises. At Stammer, McKnight, Barnum & Bailey LLP, we know that litigation can be one of the most stressful, time-consuming and expensive experiences a property owner or business faces. Our extensive experience with this area of the law and our commitment to thorough investigation allow us to provide a vigorous defense for our clients.

We handle cases involving many types of premises, including:

  • Retail stores
  • Apartment buildings
  • Office buildings
  • Restaurants and fast food establishments
  • Shopping centers
  • Bars

Our lawyers have an in-depth understanding of how California law applies to premises liability in a number of different circumstances. To strengthen your case, we retain a number of technical experts in the engineering and security fields, among others, to demonstrate that your property meets the standards required for the safety of patrons and the public.

Effective premises liability defense

When you retain us, we provide you with a prompt assessment of your exposure to liability so that you can decide how to proceed. Our goal is to minimize any damages and the expense a lawsuit can add to the costs of protecting your business. If we believe that the liability claim against you can succeed before a jury, we minimize losses by negotiating a settlement. But we are also experienced litigators who can take your case to trial if necessary.
