Premises Liability

Whether they know it or not, people rely on businesses and property owners to make their premises safe. If a property owner fails to uphold its safety responsibility, an accident can happen, leading to an injury.

This is particularly true for bicyclists and pedestrians living in Los Angeles, who already have to contend with dangerous and hostile motorists. Josh Cohen has obtained millions of dollars for his clients who were injured due to defective roadways and walkways

Contact an LA Attorney

Contact an LA attorney who is an expert on California premises liability law if any of the following happens to you:

Fire or Electrocution

Failure to adequately maintain facilities can increase the risk of fire. A fire can occur suddenly, through no fault of your own, because of faulty wiring or other issues. If negligence is proven, the building owner or a relevant contractor may be found responsible for damages.

Security Negligence

In many cases, businesses are required to provide adequate security in and around their commercial properties. Some areas, like parking lots, present enhanced risks. If you are assaulted or suffer other harm, you can bring a case against the property owners or other parties.

Exposure to Other Hazards

Any hazards you are exposed to as a result of a property owner’s failure to act may indicate actionable negligence. Hazards may include environmental factors like lead or chemical poisoning, plus high-risk scenarios – for example, if you are attacked by an animal.

This is just a small selection of premises liability situations. Not sure how your case fits in? A qualified California attorney can advise you about your options.

Online research is helpful, but legal decisions should be made with personalized attention from an expert. Acting quickly is essential, as problems are often repaired or disguised following an accident.

Don’t Overlook Your Legal Rights In An ‘Accident’ Situation

Sometimes, people are hesitant to bring premises liability cases to a lawyer. In a sudden event such as a slip-and-fall or one caused by a defective roadway, the victim may feel that he or she bears some responsibility. It’s important to ask yourself: Would this harm have occurred if responsible parties had done the jobs they were entrusted with?

Even if you’re not sure, it’s crucial to speak to an attorney.

A premises liability accident can lead to long-term health problems. At first, it might be difficult to determine the extent of your injuries or the care they need. If you don’t contact an attorney promptly, you could find yourself footing the bill for someone else’s carelessness. This is especially true in a slip-and-fall case, which can cause a concussion with lasting consequences. In a defective roadway case, the consequences can be equally grave, if not worse.
