Premises liability is the legal term defining property owner liability. At Winer, Burritt & Scott, LLP, we closely examine the conditions present at the time of an injury on private property. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured on someone else’s property, it is critical to consult an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
Property owners may attempt to cover up or dispose of crucial evidence in your case if quick action is not taken. Our law firm files premises liability cases against businesses, homeowners and landowners throughout California for negligence even in cases where our clients may be partially at fault for their injuries.
California is a comparative negligence state. A plaintiff’s recovery may be reduced by the amount of negligence the plaintiff is responsible for (as a percentage of the monetary recovery for damages), but monetary compensation may still be awarded.
Winer, Burritt & Scott, LLP, has offices in Oakland, San Francisco and L.A. to serve clients in both Northern and Southern California. Call us today at (510) 433-1000 to speak with an experienced attorney. We offer free initial consultations and pursue all cases on a contingency fee basis.
Proving A Premises Liability Case
Premises liability is all about proving the prior ability of property owners to prevent or mitigate unreasonable risks of harm on their property, which may include houses, apartments, stores, properties under renovation or construction, private land and other businesses.
We represent people in cases involving:

- Gunshot wounds
- Sexual assault or rape
- Other types of property owner negligence
Common causes of injury include slippery floors; poorly maintained stairs and handrails; falling objects; inadequate swimming pool safety measures; parking lot defects; poorly maintained roofs, decks or scaffolding; and other maintenance issues.
