Premises Liability Attorneys in Sacramento

Holding Property Owners Responsible for their Negligence

Property owners, particularly owners of stores and other businesses, have a duty to keep visitors safe. When their failure to live up to that duty leads to serious injuries, they can be held accountable through legal action. Our Sacramento personal injury lawyers at the law offices of Smolich and Smolich have decades of experience pursuing compensation for victims of negligent property owners and are well-prepared to start work on your case as soon as possible.

What Does a Premises Attorney Do?

The biggest thing a premises attorney does is help you recover damages due to the negligence of a property owner. During this process, they can help you:

  • Avoid delays
  • If the case goes to trial, help litigate your case
  • Make sure all damages are accounted for
  • Ensure you have a fair chance against the insurance adjusters

How Do I Know if My Claim Is Valid?

Claims against negligent property owners are referred to as premises liability claims. They can be filed when there is reason to believe that the property owner's negligence caused harm to a visitor to the property. Often, negligence takes the form of failure to address a hazardous condition on the property.

It is important to note that, in order for a claim to be effective, there must be evidence that the property owner had the opportunity to address the hazard and failed to do so. Proof of the hazard alone may not be sufficient. For example, if a freezer suddenly breaks down and a customer slips on the liquid that has leaked out the victim has less of a chance at a successful claim than if the freezer had been broken down for weeks and the property owner failed to repair it.

Premises liability claims may involve:

Slip & Fall Accident Claims

Slip-and-fall accidents are among the most common premises liability claims. They may involve situations such as when visitors to stores slip on leaks, spills, or other hazards and suffer injury. Slip-and-fall accidents can be challenging cases, but we have the experience necessary to effectively pursue the financial compensation you need and deserve. In fact, you have nothing to lose by calling our Sacramento personal injury attorneys, as you don't pay us a dime unless we recover compensation.

  • You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process.

    “I sincerely apologize for the delay! I truly thought I had already sent this off to almost 3 months ago! Thank goodness I had someone helping me clean and organize the apartment last week. She found your letter behind my bookcase. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your support and dedication throughout my case. You were a true blessing to me. You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process. Just the fact that you returned a call so promptly was a very big deal to me. It let me know that I mattered to you, Sarah, and the firm. Thanks to the two of you I am finally settled in my own apartment and my mom was able to finally retire. So again, thank you from the depths of my heart for everything that you personally and your firm have done for me. You were true angels in my tie of need.”

  • Thank you Sarah and team!

    “I needed to apply for disability and knew nothing about how to go about it. Sarah called me and explained the process and assured me everything would be okay. Her staff went online to fill out my application. She and Marlena kept me updated every step of the way. Within a short time a decision was made in my favor. I cannot tell you how many sleepless nights I had prior to meeting with the team. I would recommend them to anyone who needs help in this area. Thank you so much for all your hard work. Without you I could have never done this.”


  • They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!

    “Thank you so much for your help. I was denied twice by social security disability. They are the most diligent and wonderfully. Yes it takes a while to get a hearing. If it wasn't for the great staff and attorneys here, I would have never been approved for disability. It was the best Christmas gift i received. They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!”
