Property owners — whether commercial, residential or public entity — owe a certain duty of safety to patrons, tenants and visitors. Any person who has a lawful and legitimate reason to be on the premises may bring a claim for injuries resulting from dangerous conditions encountered on the property. This might be a hidden defect, neglected maintenance or injury inflicted by the owner’s pet.

Premises liability claims are not always successful. Several elements must be proven such as significant injury, a dangerous condition, and whether the owner had notice or knowledge.

The attorneys of Guenard & Bozarth have obtained notable results in premises liability cases across Northern California. We investigate promptly to document evidence, and work closely with clients to track the collateral impact on their health and family finances.

We have prevailed in a wide range of cases:

Property owners are ostensibly responsible for any injuries that happen as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on their property. However, the plaintiff has the burden of proving that the owner knew or should have known about the danger and had opportunity to address the problem before someone got hurt. This legal standard of fault can make premises liability difficult to prove.

Our Sacramento premises liability attorneys excel at developing theories of liability to hold owners accountable. We pursue damages for past and future medical care, loss of income, residual disability, and pain and suffering.

If you were injured on someone else’s property, contact us online or call our Sacramento or Elk Grove offices for a free case evaluation. You will work directly with an experienced trial lawyer who knows how to win your case and maximize your compensation. Evidence and witnesses disappear, and there may be a statute of limitations on your claims, so do not delay in seeking legal counsel.

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.

My daughter was involved in an automobile accident in an intersection on her 17th birthday. The other person said it was her fault and my daughter said her light was green. I am not the sort of person who sues but my insurance
