Lead to massive medical bills.
Lead to loss of employment or wages as you heal.
Cause pain and suffering.

What Type of Premise Liability Cases We Work On
At McCrary Law Firm, we will determine the effects the accident has on your life. It will allow us to place a value on the entire amount that covers all you have suffered. Premise liability accidents are not your fault. The property owner is responsible for ensuring that anyone who enters or walks on their property can do so without the risk of being injured.
The injuries you sustain can range from mild scrapes to fractures. At our premises liability law firm Rocklin we represent people in cases involving property owner negligence, such as the following:
Slip and Fall Accidents
Spills that weren’t blocked off or wiped, walkway debris, tripping hazards, etc. can lead to falls. These are common in public places such as grocery stores, restaurants, and sidewalks. However, such accidents are common on private property and make owners liable for damages.
Under California's strict liability law, dog owners are liable for the actions their pet takes, whether they are negligent or not. A dog bite can lead to severe infections, rabies and cause pain and suffering..
Insufficient Security Measures
Common in poorly managed hospitals, apartment buildings, and parking garages, negligent security can increase the numbers of robberies, rape, and assault. This includes a lack of security cameras, guards, lockable windows, and gated entries.
Swimming pool accidents
Both public and private swimming pools turn hazardous with negligence. As per California law, swimming pools need to be secured with self-closing gates, fences, and anti-entrapment devices to prevent accidents. However, older swimming pools may produce malfunctioning or no measures to ensure this.
Elevators that are not maintained or fixed regularly can lead to severe accidents from freefalling to getting stuck between floors. Property owners who fail in this duty or fail to warn residents about the dangers are liable for accidents and injuries.
Broken or Uneven Stairs
Loose or missing railings, uneven steps, unmarked edges, and other structural issues can lead to accidents. These can also result from spills on stairs that aren't cordoned off as they dry.
Negligent Property Upkeep
Lack of proper or regular maintenance can lead to hazardous conditions on a property. This includes broken stairs, holes in the flooring, landscaping issues, low hanging branched, etc.
Fire codes are maintained to prevent deadly conflagrations. When fireproofing, sprinkler systems and fire alarms are absent or don't work, you can suffer severe burns or worse. Fires caused by improper storage of flammable materials can also cause serious injuries.
Amusement Park Accidents
Accidents on amusement park rides are catastrophic more often than not. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure each ride is maintained to prevent such incidents.
How the Property Owner Should Warn People about Hazards on the Premises
If a property owner cannot fix a hazardous situation on his/her property, they have to put up a notice warning others. That way, people can avoid certain areas or take all the necessary precautions to prevent accidents.
The type of notice depends on the kind of danger that the hazard represents. It should give people fair warning of the location and the risk of not adhering to it. The notice also has to be visible or obvious enough to be noticeable. It should make people aware of the danger before they are close enough to be caught in it and harmed.
How We Can Help
Premise liability cases turn obsolete with a lack of evidence. Our attorneys can help you gather necessary proof that finds the property owner liable for your injuries and damages. This includes:
Property maintenance records,
CCTV camera footage of the accident.
Records of similar accidents on the property.
Photographs of the injuries sustained due to the accident.
After proving negligence, we establish that our client was harmed or suffered an injury and that the owner's negligence was a significant factor in causing said harm.
Delays can lead to evidence tampering. Property owners can erase camera footage or fix the issue that caused the accident before making a claim. In such cases, proving liability can be a long and tedious process, if not impossible.
