Premises Liability Claims
When a property owner fails to maintain their property and keep it clear of hazards, an innocent individual could suffer from a slip and fall accident.

Property Owner’s Duty
A property owner is responsible for ensuring that their space is safe for visitors. Improper maintenance of walkways can lead to accidents that have serious physical and financial repercussions. Obstructions and uneven or slippery walking surfaces can cause an individual to lose their footing or can impede their forward motion and lead to an injury-causing fall. However, proving that a product owner is at fault for this type of accident can be complicated.
To prove liability on the part of a property owner, one of the following must be true:
- The obstruction or surface condition was created by the owner
- The owner was aware of the unsafe condition and failed to take action
- The condition has existed for a long enough period of time that the owner should have been aware of it and made necessary corrections.

I was scared to death after being on the witness stand for several hours. Clint Brasher kept reassuring me but, when we broke the trial for the day and I was offered $100,000.00, I wanted to take it. Clint advised me not to and that we would do better with the jury. While it was hard, I followed his advice. The verdict the next day was for $240,000.00 plus interest. I recommend anyone with a legal problem to call Clint Brasher. He was not only a skillful advocate, he was a friend to me during this difficult time.Edward Arabie
After being told by multiple lawyers that I really had no case or that my chances of being awarded any settlement was very slim, I was referred to the Brasher Law firm. Nishi worked on my case and with very little effort on my part, she put together my case with an opening statement and presentation that put my opponent on their heels. She set a goal from the start and didn’t relent until her goal was met and I got what was owed me. Thank you Nishi for knocking it out of the park!L. Smith
