In a premises liability case, the owner or controller of the land, or structure, or others, are legally liable to pay you after trip, slip, fall, or bang your head into a low hanging object like an unmarked or hidden merchandise hangar, shelf or hook.

You can even be blinded from a sharp, protruding piece of metal from a display, or lose an eye on an in a set of forklift blades. Think Home Depot or Lowes, for example, with all their warehousing and docking. Most of all, when the business fails to conduct inspections for known damagers and keep customers away and warned until repairs have been finalized.

When you get injured, an investigation is supposed to happen. But most of the time, the store manager will refuse to give you a copy of your supposed statements in their reports. And this is to try and get out of it later.

So be smart and record, with your smartphone if the store manager has no reasonable expectation of privacy and state only facts. With the chance of injury on property existing for any place, making sure that you know the common ways that this leads to liability claims can help you prepare.

Slips And Falls Top The List Of Cases We Take.

All injuries are not the same. One of the most common injuries in Los Angeles come from slip, tripping, and falling. Many times these events are due to another person’s negligence, such as letting tree roots push up sections of sidewalks, creating a ridge to trip on. Others can from slipping on wet floors at grocery stores in the vegetable aisles, for example. Moreover, in many cases, we help with will come in the form of slip and fall claims.

Most of all, these cases can happen at any place at any time. However, many are caused by issues that were not known or not addressed. This can include slippery floors that were just mopped or a broken handrail outside a building. These can face people in both residential and commercial property and could be the result of nails sticking out of boards, rugs that run-up, or other factors. Poor lighting can complicate any of these issues and make the injury more severe.

Obstructions And Overhangs Can Be The Cause Of A Premises Claim.

There have also been premises liability claims brought about for obstructions. Many are on the floor, but others can include implements that stick out into a walkway or one that hangs near the head level.

Animals Can Be The Cause Of A Premises Claim?

Yes! Dogs are known to jump at people, especially small children and elders with their paws. Knocking an old man to the ground, in particular, can lead to broken bones, brain injuries, and skull fractures. Little kids risk being knocked to the ground, getting bitten in the face, and mauled. Animal owners have also been brought to court for pets that were not properly maintained.

Common causes include dogs that were not leashed or behind a proper fence. If the dog is dangerous, passerby should be warned. Dogs and other animals should be current with all shots and paperwork.
