East Los Angeles' premises liability lawyers of Mendez and Sanchez strongly believe that when you legally get into somebody else's property in California, you have a legal right to standard safety. If a residential or commercial property owner fails to keep a reasonably safe environment-- including examining for hidden dangers-- the courts may hold him or her financially responsible for any damages that happen as a result of property owner negligence.
Premises liability laws declare that all property owners are accountable for injuries and accidents sustained on their property. Common premises liability situations involve slip and fall injuries, malfunctioning premises conditions, elevator incidents, swimming pool incidents, canine bites, fires, water leaks, and hazardous chemicals.
When property owners are negligent in offering a fairly safe environment for visitors, customers, hired workers, contractors, and anyone else welcomed onto their property, premises liability laws make it their responsibility to spend for damages. Injury alone isn't enough of a factor, however. Property owners have to have been negligent in their duties for the courts to hold them responsible.
The next and most important step is confirming the property owner was negligent in his/her legal obligations to give a safe environment for you. Your East Los Angeles personal injury lawyer will conduct an examination of the property, acquiring key witnesses, interviews, and pictures of the allegedly unsafe part of the property. If the situation goes to court, the existence of a key witness to vouch for a hazardous property is essential.
For instance, to prove that the sidewalk outside of a store front is so uneven as to cause somebody to trip and fall, your attorney might employ a contractor who installs walkways in California as your key witness. As a specialist, the contractor can go over why the property owner was negligent for failing to change the uneven walkway.
Premises liability cases can be complicated, especially when property owner neglect is complicated to verify. Other elements, such as if the owner was just partially responsible for a hazardous problem, can throw a wrench in your case if not handled by an experienced personal injury attorney. When you need trustworthy legal assistance in East LA, contact Mendez and Sanchez APC, at East Los Angeles for your premises liability case.
