Premises Liability in San Gabriel, CA

San Gabriel Premises Liability Attorney

Unsafe conditions like faulty wiring, improperly stacked merchandise and loose carpeting cause accidents leading to serious injury. Businesses and property owners have an important responsibility to create safe environments for their customers and visitors. This also includes walkways and parking lots, in addition to individuals they hire. Workers are there to serve and at times, even protect people who go to their places of business. The lawyers at Tim D. Wright, are experienced in the legal responsibilities and liabilities of businesses or organizations that fail to offer these safe conditions.

You can readily suffer injury through no fault of your own when you visit property such as a store, office building, motel or apartment complex. If the owner or occupier of the property knew of a hazardous condition or activity that caused your injury and neglected to take timely, practical steps to protect you from it, you may be qualified to recover full compensation for all harm you have suffered. You should immediately get help from an experienced San Gabriel premises liability attorney.

Premises Liability Claims In California

When you consult with Tim D. Wright, we will thoroughly examine the facts of your case. We will identify and pursue all of your legal options against the owner or occupant of the property where your injury occurred. Generally, the matters that we will focus on include:

  • Duty-- Did you legally visit the property? For example, were you a customer at a store, a guest at a hotel or a social guest at someone's residence? If so, the property owner or occupier owed a duty to exercise ordinary care to ensure that the property was safe for you. In other words, the owner or occupier needed to take reasonable measures to protect you from any dangerous condition on the property that the owner or occupier knew or reasonably should have known about and which you would not have been expected to discover on your own.
  • Breach-- Did the owner or occupier fail to repair the dangerous condition in a reasonable, timely way or, at the very least, to warn you about it? If so, the owner failed to fulfill the duty owed to you and could be held legally responsible for your injuries.
  • Causation-- Did the negligence of the owner or occupant contribute to the injuries that you suffered, or did something else-- perhaps your own actions-- cause the injuries?
  • Damages-- Did you suffer actual injury as a result of the failure of the property owner or occupant to fulfill the duty owed to you? This means that you must show that you suffered real physical, emotional and/or financial harm.

It is always important to consider the ways a property owner or occupier will try to avoid liability. For example, the owner or occupier may claim that you were a trespasser or suggest that you suffered injuries because you walked into an "open and obvious" hazard. The attorneys at Tim D. Wright, will be ready to address those issues and protect your right to full and fair compensation.

Types of Premises Liability Claims In California

A premises liability claim can emerge in many different circumstances. Some of the most common premises liability cases that our law firm handles include:

  • Slip and falls-- These incidents often happen due to wet and slippery floors, bad lighting, broken and uneven walkways, torn or frayed carpeting and icy or snowy sidewalks and parking lots. In addition, many falls occur due to defects such as broken stairs or handrails.
  • Falling objects-- Many individuals suffer injuries when poorly stacked merchandise falls from store shelves or when workers drop tools, equipment and materials at construction sites.
  • Contamination-- Landlords, in particular, subject tenants and their guests to harm when they neglect to perform regular inspections and remedy issues such as mold buildup, lead paint, carbon monoxide or gas leaks. Usually, their negligence violates local building codes.
  • Escalator and elevator accidents-- These accidents usually occur when building owners or tenants fail to routinely inspect and maintain elevators and escalators in stores, shopping centers and office buildings.
  • Negligent security-- Many assaults take place in shopping centers, office buildings, apartments, hotels and motels because property owners and managers fail to protect guests from known security hazards, or they hire employees without an adequate criminal background check.
  • Swimming pool accidents-- Drownings and near-drownings may occur if a property owner or occupant neglects to adequately maintain a swimming pool and features such as slides and diving boards. Pool owners should also use a fence or locked gate to keep out children and protect against the foreseeable risk of an accident.
