When we talk about premises liability cases, we refer to properties – whether owned by a business or otherwise – that have, whether through negligence or intent, caused injury to innocent bystanders. A business that owners, leases or controls a property is obligated to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition. An individual may be injured on property or the site of the property; the cause of the injury being either the property or the land area that comes with the property. At Nehora Law Firm, our premises liability lawyers can help you recover damages from injuries directly attributable to these properties – from both economic and noneconomic causes.
If you have been injured on a property or its adjacent land may be entitled to compensation. Damages may come about because of pain and suffering, medical expenses, loss of income or other property damage. We have helped clients throughout Orange County recover lost damages for a wide variety of cases. If you’re unsure whether you have a case, fill out our online form today and one of our personal injury attorneys will get back to you very shortly with a free consultation. That being said, we can summarize how premises liability cases may come about. These causes include, but are not limited to:
A property is made unsafe due to a slippery surface
Failure to maintain the surrounding area
Lack of adequate warnings regarding safety hazards
Failure to make necessary repairs
A property owner permits his/her dog to injure another person
Failure to observe necessary safety precautions on construction work sites
Restaurant or nightclub personnel (e.g. a bouncer) injures a patron
One of the key elements of a premises liability case is proving responsibility. It must be shown that the property owner could have prevented an accident from taking place; not only through direct prevention but also through better safety standards, too. There are innumerable types of premises liability claim. Below, we review some of the most common types:
- Exposure to chemical or hazardous substances
- Insufficient and/or aggressive security
- Inadequate safety measures at swimming pools
- Falls on wet, slippery, ice or uneven surfaces
- Dog bite accidents on owner’s premises
- Insufficient fire hazard warnings
- Neglect, recklessness or intent by a third-party
Of course, this list is by no means exhaustive. For example, personal injury may also be caused through fires or explosions; causing both personal and material damage. Our premises liability lawyers help you determine whether you have a case and, if so, what compensation you’re entitled to. Of course, the precise value varies on a case-by-case basis, but it typically includes medical expenses, loss of income, loss of quality of life, amongst other factors. We will assess your case for all possible sources of damage/loss; maximizing your potential compensation.
Determining responsibility and protecting your rights can, in some premises liability cases, prove to be a complex task. There are many factors to consider; such as whether you were legally on the property in the first place etc. Nonetheless, with the relevant evidence to hand, our personal injury lawyers can establish a case in your favor. Consulting a knowledgeable and experienced attorney is, then, of paramount importance. Injuries sustained on another property should not be the cause of economic distress. Our attorneys can alleviate this burden and, through compensation, improve your quality of life.
