San Fernando Valley Premises Liability Lawyer

Unsafe conditions like faulty wiring, improperly stacked merchandise and loose carpeting cause accidents leading to serious injury. Businesses and property owners have a vital responsibility to create safe environments for their customers and visitors. This also includes walkways and parking lots, in addition to the people they employ. Employees are there to serve and sometimes, even protect individuals who go to their places of business. The lawyers at Drake Law Firm, are experienced in the legal responsibilities and liabilities of companies or organizations that fail to offer these safe environments.

You can easily sustain injury through no fault of your own when you visit property such as a store, office building, motel or apartment complex. If the owner or occupier of the property knew of a hazardous condition or activity that caused your injury and neglected to take timely, practical steps to protect you from it, you may be eligible to recover full compensation for all damage you have suffered. You should immediately get help from an experienced San Fernando Valley premises liability attorney.

Premises Liability Cases in California

When you work with Drake Law Firm, we will thoroughly assess the facts of your case. We will determine and pursue all of your legal options against the owner or occupant of the property where your injury occurred. Typically, the matters that we will concentrate on include:

  • Duty-- Did you legally visit the property? For instance, were you a customer at a store, a guest at a hotel or a social guest at a person's home? If so, the property owner or occupier owed a duty to exercise ordinary care to make sure that the property was safe for you. In other words, the owner or occupant needed to take reasonable steps to protect you from any dangerous condition on the property that the owner or occupier knew or reasonably should have known about and which you would not have been expected to find on your own.
  • Breach-- Did the owner or occupant fail to repair the hazardous condition in a reasonable, timely way or, at the very least, to warn you about it? If so, the owner failed to fulfill the duty owed to you and could be held legally responsible for your injuries.
  • Causation-- Did the carelessness of the owner or occupier contribute to the injuries that you suffered, or did something else-- possibly your own actions-- cause the injuries?
  • Damages-- Did you suffer actual injury because of the failure of the property owner or occupant to fulfill the duty owed to you? This means that you must prove that you suffered real physical, emotional and/or financial harm.

It is always important to look at the ways a property owner or occupant will try to avoid liability. For example, the owner or occupier may claim that you were a trespasser or argue that you sustained injuries because you walked into an "open and obvious" hazard. The attorneys at Drake Law Firm, will be prepared to address those issues and protect your right to full and fair compensation.

Tipos de reclamaciones de responsabilidad de locales en California

A premises liability claim can arise in many different circumstances. A few of the most common premises liability cases that our law firm handles include:

  • Slip and falls-- These incidents usually happen due to wet and slippery floors, bad lighting, broken and uneven sidewalks, torn or frayed carpeting and icy or snowy sidewalks and parking lots. Additionally, a lot of falls occur because of defects such as broken stairways or handrails.
  • Falling objects-- Many individuals sustain injuries when improperly stacked merchandise falls from store shelves or when workers drop tools, equipment and materials at construction sites.
  • Contamination-- Landlords, in particular, subject tenants and their visitors to harm when they neglect to perform routine inspections and remedy concerns such as mold accumulation, lead paint, carbon monoxide or gas leaks. Often, their neglect violates local building codes.
  • Escalator and elevator accidents-- These accidents usually happen when building owners or tenants fail to routinely inspect and maintain elevators and escalators in stores, shopping centers and office complexes.
  • Negligent security-- Numerous assaults occur in shopping centers, office buildings, apartments, hotels and motels because property owners and managers fail to protect guests from known security hazards, or they hire employees without a sufficient criminal background check.
  • Swimming pool accidents-- Drownings and near-drownings might occur if a property owner or occupier neglects to properly maintain a pool and features such as slides and diving boards. Pool owners should also use a fence or locked gate to keep out children and prevent the foreseeable risk of an accident.
