Los Angeles Premises Liability Lawyers

If you received injuries while at a store or a next-door neighbor’s home, you may be entitled to receive compensation under Los Angeles premises liability laws. According to state law, those who get injured while on the property of another person or company can receive damages if they can prove the owner was negligent in maintaining the area.

Los Angeles Premises Liability

Like many other cities, Los Angeles requires property owners to provide a duty of care to visitors. This care is critical in protecting guests from known hazards, including those they should be reasonably aware of. When an owner fails to follow through on correcting dangerous conditions they are made aware of, they may be liable for injuries caused by their inaction.

 

While many might think of slipping, tripping, and falling when it comes to premises accidents, the reality is liability comes in many other dangerous forms, including:

 

  • Construction on the property

  • Lack of or inadequate security

  • Dangerous activities on the property that endanger visitors

  • Obscured electric lines

  • Unsafe product stacking in stores and warehouses

  • Water-related dangers like un-gated swimming pools

Types of Premises Liability Damages

If you can prove a property owner’s negligence according to laws under California, then your attorney will submit damages to the insurance company or trial court. The damages you can recover depend on the severity of your injuries and any shared negligence you might have in the case.

Typically, you can receive many of the following damages as a result of a successful premises liability suit:

  • Current and future medical costs

  • Lost wages

  • Short and/or Long-term disability

  • Emotional distress

  • Pain and suffering

  • Mental anguish

  • Loss of consortium

  • Wrongful death

  • Diminished earning capacity

  • Other related losses

 

Not all premises liability cases are straightforward, and proving that the other party was negligent and harmed you, as a result, requires the skill of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney.

Los Angeles Comparative Negligence and Your Premises Liability Case

Comparative negligence is a regular aspect of any Los Angeles premises liability injury case. Because state law uses a pure approach toward assigning fault, a plaintiff has no limit on the percentage of liability they might have for their injuries. Even if you were to have 75% fault for your injuries, a court could still award you 25% of what you would have recovered if not liable at all.

Many times, insurance companies and other liable parties will also try to deflect fault onto the victim in hopes of reducing the amount of compensation to be paid. This tactic is why you must speak with a highly skilled attorney before communicating with any insurers, their adjusters, or other parties related to the case.
