Premises Liability

Southern California Slip-and-Fall Accident and Premises Liability Lawyers

A Legal Team that Has Handled a Combined Hundreds of Jury Trials

Jury trials are rare when compared to settlements negotiated out of court. Many civil litigation firms go into crisis mode if they can’t settle a case out of court and many have handled no jury trials, or just a few.

At the law firm of Gates, Gonter, Guy, Proudfoot & Muench LLP, we take a different approach. We believe that the justice system is there to use, not just to threaten with. Consistent with this belief, we have handled hundreds of courtroom trials and have litigated approximately 400 trials to verdict.

That doesn’t mean we are careless regarding clients’ risk; we are careful both to assess risk and to communicate dispute resolution options to clients. It does mean, though, that clients’ maximum award is often obtained not through a settlement, which is actually a compromise, but through fully winning a case through a jury’s verdict.

If you need comprehensive legal help regarding a slip-and-fall accident in California, contact a firm that will diligently handle your case to trial, if necessary. We have handled numerous cases involving dangerous property, including cases occurring:

  • In building lobbies
  • On sidewalks and in parking lots
  • In big-box stores
  • In mall, retail stores, grocery stores and supermarkets
  • In residential homes and complexes, including townhouse developments, condominium developments and apartment complexes

We can provide effective legal help following injuries resulting from allegedly inadequate security, unsafe conditions, slippery surfaces, inadequate lighting, unsafe stairwells and other issues. For more information, please contact our firm.
