At Pearlman, Brown & Wax, our premises liability attorneys in Los Angeles can defend your business against liability claims.
Many common liability claims involve injuries suffered due to dangerous conditions on another's property.
For instance, there are three main kinds of liability cases: slip and fall accidents, trip and falls (someone tripping or slipping), and motor vehicle liability.
If you own a business and permit customers, employees, or visitors to enter your property, you have a duty of care to ensure the premises are reasonably safe for those who enter.
Such liability claims can be filed against an individual's home or any other structure where someone might stay temporarily (e.g., hotels, motels, inns, bed, and breakfast) or visit (e.g., hospitals, parks, school campuses), as well as any other business location where people gather.
Liability claims can be filed for failure to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition by failing to do such things as properly secure staircases; keep floor surfaces clear of debris, snow, and ice; keeping elevators in working order; having adequate hall lighting to prevent falls at night; properly secure railings on decks or balconies; fix broken steps or other hazards on stairs; remove protruding nails that might cause someone to fall.
The liability claims filed depend on the facts of each individual case.
