Los Angeles Premises Liability Lawyers
Have You Suffered a Life-Changing Accident on Someone Else’s Property? Our Team Can Help You Make a Claim for Compensation.
When you’re on someone else’s property, whether as a social guest or as a customer who might patronize the property owner’s business, you’re kept safe by premises liability law. The owner or manager of a property is responsible for keeping any sidewalks, buildings, etc. in good repair and otherwise safe for visitors. When they are negligent in their duty, they can be held responsible for injuries visitors to the property face. California differs from other states in that your visitor “status” matters less to the eligibility of your claim, making it easier for guests on a property to recover compensation if they’ve been injured.
To bring a premises liability case, you must prove a landowner’s lack of care led to an accident that injured you and caused tangible losses. This is not always easy, and if you are trying to make a claim to a home insurance or commercial insurance company, you may find your case challenged despite your evidence. At Robins Cloud LLP, our attorneys are here to help you bring a strong premises liability claim if you’ve been seriously injured by an incident on someone else’s property. We want to help you receive the compensation you need to sustain your financial security.
Cause for a Premises Liability Claim
A property owner is responsible by any damages caused by their “want of ordinary care or skill in the management” of their property—but what does that mean? There are many different ways a landowner’s failure to safely maintain a property can translate into an injury claim. For instance:
- Stairs that do not meet safety regulations can cause serious trip-and-falls.
- Ice and liquids can cause people to slip and fall.
- Shelves, lights, or other hanging objects that are not well-connected can fall, landing on those below them.
- Balconies can collapse, endangering anyone using them and anyone who might be below them.
- Lack of adequate security may result in visitors or tenants being attacked by violent criminals.
- Improper machinery setup/maintenance can cause severe electric shock or burn injuries.
- “Attractive nuisances” that may attract children such as swimming pools, machinery, swing sets, and the like can cause a variety of injuries to children too young to understand the danger.
- Inadequate ventilation or unsafe storage could lead to chemical exposure and related diseases.
Premises liability can be brought against homeowners/private real estate owners or commercial entities that own stores, venues for amusement or entertainment, hotels and amenities, and the like. If you have suffered a serious injury and think you might have a case, our attorneys are here to answer your questions.
Serious Injuries Linked to Unsafe Premises
In some cases, an accident may result in a sprain or puncture wound—something that is painful, but relatively easy to treat and heal. In other cases, the victims of such accidents may sustain severe and even life-changing damages. These cases may be harder to prosecute, because no insurer wants to pay the settlement such a claim might require, but it’s important to have your rights protected if you’ve been affected in such way. We can help with injuries including:
- Burns (chemical, electrical, radiation, or thermal)
- Crushed bones
- Fractures and multiple fractures
- Loss of limb/amputation
- Spinal cord injury
- Toxin-linked disease, such as mesothelioma
- Traumatic brain injury
- Wrongful death
All of these injuries sadly can and do happen when property owners fail to keep their grounds and buildings well-maintained and safe from any potential violent intruders. It’s not right for a victim and their family to face medical and other related costs when they’re already suffering. The negligent party should be held responsible for the harms they’ve caused.
