Unsafe conditions like faulty wiring, poorly stacked merchandise and loose carpeting cause accidents leading to major injury. Businesses and property owners have an important responsibility to create safe environments for their customers and visitors. This also includes walkways and parking lots, in addition to the people they hire. Workers are there to serve and at times, even protect individuals that visit 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 provide these safe conditions.

If the owner or occupant of the property knew of a hazardous condition or activity that caused your injury and neglected to take timely, reasonable steps to protect you from it, you may be qualified to recover full compensation for all harm you have suffered. You should immediately get help from an experienced Studio City premises liability lawyer.
