Premises liability

HERE WHEN YOU NEED US

Were you injured by hazardous conditions on another person’s property?

When we visit the private or public property of another person, the expectation is that the premises are safe for guests. When the owner or occupier fails to fix or warn about dangerous conditions on the property and you are hurt as a result, you may have a claim for compensation under premises liability. The Lion’s Law Office holds property owners accountable for their negligence when our clients are injured on their land.

Premises Liability Accidents can Happen Anywhere

Premises liability law in California applies to all public and private land to which guests are invited as customers or visitors — or even sometimes as trespassers. The owners of restaurants, bars, shopping malls, amusement parks, movie theaters, apartment complexes, parking lots and garages, retail stores, banks, private residences, and more all have a responsibility to keep their premises free of hazards and safe for guests. Premises liability accidents can happen almost anywhere, so if you are injured, it is critical that you reach out to an attorney to learn about your legal options.

Faqs

What do I need to prove in court for a premises liability claim?

In order to win an injury lawsuit for a premises liability case, you must be able to prove that the property owner or occupier owed you a duty of care as a guest, that the duty was breached by the existence of a hazardous condition on the premises, that as a direct result of the hazard you were injured, and that your injuries caused you actual damages. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you with all of this.

How long does it take to receive compensation?

The amount of time it takes to receive compensation for your case depends on the complexity of your claim and the willingness of the insurance companies to offer you a fair settlement for your injuries. For simple cases, in which negotiation is minimal and a settlement is quickly reached, you could receive compensation in a matter of weeks or a couple of months. However, more complicated cases or claims in which the insurance company refuses to settle require a trial, and this could mean that it takes significantly longer to receive compensation. Call or contact The Lion’s Law Office to learn more about the particulars of your claim and what to expect moving forward.
