Premises liability refers to the legal obligation of property owners to maintain reasonably safe conditions on their property for those with a legitimate reason to be there, such as shoppers at a mall or in a parking lot. When property owners fail to keep up their property, those injured on the premises may be able to hold the owner responsible for their related expenses.
Slip and fall cases are complex, which means many law firms will pass on taking a slip and fall case. The Law Offices of Jacob Emrani is unafraid of the difficult cases, and we thoroughly analyze your accident to give you our best legal advice on your chances of recovering compensation. By allowing property owners to only be responsible for making “reasonable inspection” of the premises over time, they have the upper-hand; so in cases of contested liability, an accident reconstruction expert is often needed who specializes in unsafe walking surfaces or tripping hazards. If you have suffered a bad fall, hold on to the shoes you were wearing at the time until you can get legal advice as to whether to proceed with a claim.
If you were injured, you deserve aggressive representation: call us today at (888) 952-2952!
Our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys are trained to know what kinds of documents and “reasonable inspections” should have been made, and whether they appear to have been inadequate. Often a store will have security video capturing some aspect of your accident, and there may be witnesses who can only be found by an investigator. Our attorneys will pursue this information and, as is our motto, we “don’t take ‘no’ for an answer.
A Los Angeles Slip & Fall Attorney You Can Trust
Property owner liability varies depending on the rules and principles adopted in the jurisdiction where the injury occurred. An experienced personal injury lawyer at our firm can evaluate the strength of your premises liability claim and help you recover damages for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
Injuries on a premises can happen anywhere, most commonly at:
- parking lots,
- restaurants, and
- shopping malls
- Inside buildings due to dangerous conditions such as torn carpeting, bad lighting, narrow or poorly maintained stairs, or a wet floor
The owner of a business has a legal duty and resposibility to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition, or at least warn the public of a dangerous condition that they caused, were aware of, or should have been aware of. If these tests are not met, and you injure yourself on their property as a result of their failure to meet these conditions, you may have a valid claim against the business owner.
