Los Angeles Premises Liability Attorney
In Los Angeles, land owners are responsible for ensuring that their property is clear of hazardous conditions. This is true for all land owners, whether they own residential or commercial property. When a property owner fails to keep their premises free of hazardous conditions, or fails to warn other people of existing hazardous conditions, they may be considered liable for any accidents that occur while other people are on their property.
Each year, countless people sustain injuries while on another person’s property. Common examples of accidents include: slipping and falling in an icy parking lot, falling down unclear stairs, tripping and falling due to an obstruction on a walkway, or slipping and falling on a wet surface. In all of these examples, the property owner may be considered liable for the victim’s injuries because he/she did not remove the hazardous conditions or warn the victim the conditions existed.

Premises liability is a legal term that refers to the responsibility of property owners. If a person sustains an injury while on another person’s property, he/she may be able to seek monetary compensation from the property owner.

For this reason, it is always in a person’s best interest to seek the legal guidance and representation of an experience premises liability lawyer.
