Jones, Skelton & Hochuli successfully represents retail entities—from small, insured businesses to large, self-insured Fortune 500 corporations—in all types of premises liability litigation. Our attorneys have extensive experience evaluating retail business liability and damages claims, as well as any related product liability claims, and helping clients find practical ways to protect their assets and investments.
In Arizona, retail businesses are not strictly liable for injuries that occur on their premises. Claimants must instead prove that any damages sustained arose from an unreasonably dangerous condition on the premises of which the business had notice. Whether a condition is “unreasonably dangerous” often hinges on the business’s ability to demonstrate compliance with appropriate standards of care.
Effective premises liability defense demands the specialized knowledge of standards of care unique to the retail business industry that our team offers. For several decades, we have successfully defended clients against adverse standard of care allegations in all stages of the process, from pretrial negotiations through state and federal trials. Our team’s defense experience and effective use of expert resources allows us to consistently achieve positive results for our retail business clients.
