Premises Liability




The 60-year-old plaintiff alleged that she slipped and fell on melted ice on the dance floor while dancing the "Electric Slide" at a holiday party at our client's restaurant.  At trial, AGF&J's attorney argued that our client did not create or have notice of the condition alleged to have caused the accident.  After deliberating for approximately three hours, the jury returned a unanimous defense verdict, finding that any negligence on the part of the restaurant was not a proximate cause of the accident.

AGF&J defends property owners and tenants, self-insured retailers, bars, restaurants and other entities in a full complement of premises liability claims.  Cases range from the most common slip- or trip-and-fall to complex and intriguing premises security claims.  AGF&J's depth of experience in these areas allows us to work with our clients to devise a litigation strategy tailored to achieve the best possible resolution for each case.
