Commercial Property Owner Liability

Premises Liability Attorneys Serving Pacific Grove, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Salinas, and Throughout California

Commercial Places In a perfect world, shopping with friends or enjoying an outing with family would never end in tragedy. Unfortunately, enduring serious and even fatal injuries at shopping, amusement and recreational facilities is not uncommon. While you cannot predict when or where an injury may occur, it is comforting to know that you can depend on the unrelenting advocacy of one of Monterey's leading personal injury firms.

At Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P., we represent personal injury claims against owners of stores, recreational facilities, swimming pools, and other commercial properties. Our attorneys have a great record of success in handling such cases and continue to obtain favorable outcomes for clients injured in public and private facilities.

Experienced Representation for Injuries Sustained at Stores, Recreational Facilities, and Amusement Parks Store owners, including standalone businesses and shopping centers or malls are held to a high standard of responsibility because they beckon shoppers to visit and spend time at their properties. Because of this, they must take reasonable action to provide a safe place to shop. Similarly, recreational businesses such as gyms, swimming pool centers, athletic complexes, and stadiums must take measures to protect their guests from harm.

Negligent management of property, including failure to properly repair broken equipment to replace faulty fixtures can have dire consequences. Even in places like amusement parks, fun can quickly turn into disaster when rides and equipment are not properly maintained or grounds are not in top condition.

Our premises liability attorneys can help when you are injured, due to negligence, at facilities including, but not limited to:

  • Stores and any type of shopping facility;
  • Gyms, swim clubs, racket clubs, and spas;
  • Sports fields, such as baseball, football, and soccer;
  • Ski clubs, roller skating rinks, and recreational resorts;
  • Amusement parks, theme parks, and water parks;
  • Miniature golf courses and batting cages; and
  • Go-kart facilities, and children's activity centers.

We will not only examine the conditions of the facility and the nature of what happened, we will identify every liable party in the matter so that you may receive the maximum compensation for your injury or wrongful death claim. Our mission is to secure justice and demand accountability where it is due.

Nationally-Recognized for Exemplary Case Handling

In 2005, the Department of Justice reported in a Civil Justice Survey of State Courts that 94 percent of premises liability matters were heard by a jury. If your concerns must be tried in a courtroom, consider aligning with an award-winning personal injury firm handling commercial property owner liability cases. Our attorneys are well-acquainted with the complex elements of such cases.

In California, there are multiple measures to indicate negligence. In premises liability matters, one must prove that:

  • A duty exists to provide a safe establishment;
  • The duty was breached, and
  • An injury resulted from that breach.
Proving negligence requires a great deal of investigative skill, attention to detail, and an ability to look at a matter from multiple angles. We have obtained millions for our clients and have a solid record of success. Whether through verdict or by settlement, we will fight to obtain the best possible outcome for your situation.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
