Premises Liability

Business Owner and Landlord Defense

When you own or run a building, you are responsible for keeping it safe. Despite your best safety precautions, accidents can still happen. If you are facing allegations for failing to prevent an unsafe situation, you need an attorney who can protect your rights. At Diepenbrock & Cotter, LLP, we offer owners and landlords the defense they need to protect their business.

We defend landlords, apartment owners, shopping center owners, office building owners and contractors in charge of worksites throughout Sacramento and Northern California.

Claims Against Businesses

Although there is a variety in the type of claims filed against our clients, they are all caused by injuries which happened on the client's property. We defend clients against claims stemming from:

  • Construction worksite accidents
  • Highway and roadway design
  • Slip and falls
  • Food poisoning
  • Fires

When unsafe property is the source of injuries, landlords and owners can be charged with failure to warn about the unsafe conditions or failure to inspect the area. If a third-party criminal element caused the claim, businesses may be charged with failure to provide adequate safety precautions.

If you are facing a premises liability lawsuit or require landlord defense, we can help.
