“I want you protected, and your case handled correctly from the start.”  

James Martin

Over 25 Years Experience


Property Owners Liability

These cases involve property owned by landlords, homeowners or businesses. They result from a dangerous condition on the owner’s property, and the owner’s breach of its responsibility to keep the property free of dangerous conditions. At times, when the dangerous condition is not identified, these cases involve the doctrine of “res ipsa loquitur,” which means that the burden shifts to the would be defendant or actual defendant to provide evidence to exonerate itself. When the would be defendant or actual defendant fails to provide that evidence, an insurance carrier, the court or a jury, as the case may be, is allowed to draw an inference therefrom and find liability. Jim has successfully completed a significant and substantial amount of cases when the dangerous condition has been identified and when it has not been identified.
