Do I Have a Premises Liability Case?
Determining whether or not you may have a case is difficult without knowing all of the circumstances that led to your accident. However, for every premises liability case, these four elements of negligence must be proven:
- Duty of care ”“ You must prove you were legally permitted to be on the property when you got hurt to establish the property owner had a duty to maintain a safe environment while you were on the premises.
- Breach of duty of care ”“ You must prove that the property owner was negligent in his or her duty of care. The owner knew or should have reasonable known about the dangerous condition on the property but failed to take any action to correct the problem.
- Causation ”“ This element is the hardest to prove, because you must show the direct link between the property owner’s negligence and your injuries. This often requires an investigation of all contributing factors.
- Damages ”“ You must prove that the injuries you suffered were directly caused by the property owner’s breach of duty and caused you tangible damages, such as lost wages and medical costs.
When Could a Property Owner Be Liable?
To establish a property owner’s liability for an injury that occurred on his or her property, investigators will have to determine whether you had a legal right to be on the premises. A qualifying legal status could include:
- Invitee ”“ You were on the premises because you were invited by the owner. This type of invitation is typically for a business to make money, such as a movie theater or doctor’s office. The property owner is required to notify invitees of any known hazards on the property as well as any dangerous conditions that existed long enough that he or she should have known about it.
- Licensee ”“ A licensee is invited onto a property for non-commercial reasons, such as a social guest. In this scenario, the property owner is required to notify you of any potentially dangerous conditions on the property.
- Trespasser ”“ Someone who enters a property without permission of the owner is a trespasser, and in this case, the property owner would not be liable for a trespasser’s injuries unless he or she intentionally caused the person harm.
- Child trespasser ”“ Unlike most adults, children do not fully understand a potential danger, so the law allows that a property owner may owe a greater duty of care, even if the child is a trespasser.
If you are unsure what your legal status may have been at the time of the accident and would like to speak with a licensed Flagstaff premises liability lawyer, contact Phillips Law Group today to schedule your free and confidential consultation.

How Much Could My Claim Be Worth?
Every premises liability case is different, and the value of your claim is determined, in part, by the type and extent of your injuries, along with many other mitigating factors. When you take advantage of our free consultation offer to meet with one of our experienced Flagstaff premises liability lawyers, it will be possible to give you more accurate information as it relates to your situation. However, in general, the damages you may be able to pursue for your injuries include:
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Your physical pain and suffering
- Medical costs
- Mental anguish
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Funeral and burial costs
If an injured party shares liability for his or her accident, Arizona’s comparative fault statute is another important factor that could impact the amount of compensation an accident victim may recover. The injured person may still pursue a claim, but any percentage of liability will be deducted from his or her final settlement award accordingly.
For instance, if you were assigned 10 percent fault in your accident and the awarded settlement was $100,000, the amount of damages you receive would be reduced by 10 percent for a total outcome of $90,000. If we represent you, our Flagstaff premises liability lawyers will work hard to ensure that you are not issued more fault than you deserve.
Flagstaff Premises Liability Claims We Handle
There are many types of premises liability claims our legal team handles, including but not limited to:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Construction site injuries
- Dog bites
- Toxic chemicals
- Negligent security
- Other hazardous conditions on the property
If you were injured on a commercial or private property, it is important that you do not delay in pursuing a claim. Arizona Revised Statute 12-542 defines the general legal deadline for filing a personal injury claim as two years from the date of the accident.
Although there may be exceptions that permit you to file later, there are other circumstances, such as filing against a government entity, which only gives you 180 days to act. If you are unsure if your time to file has passed, contact a knowledgeable Flagstaff premises liability attorney who can manage your claim, investigate the accident thoroughly and communicate with you throughout the legal process.

Phillips Law Group is a company that has taught me so many things. Here your work, your dedication, effort and discipline are valued, in addition to the fact that, as a woman, as an immigrant and as a human being, I have been given value and empowerment. We are a successful law firm because all workers feel part of a great family. I am very proud and honored to work at Phillips Law Group.
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
