Premises Liability

Injuries sustained on property that is either owned or controlled by another party may be grounds for a personal injury lawsuit under a legal principle known as premises liability. Under the law, property owners – both public and private – are financially liable to other parties who are injured on their land, if the owners failed to keep the property reasonably safe and free of known dangers that could cause injuries.

The personal injury lawyers of Hodes Milman have a long history of successfully representing injured victims in premises liability cases. Premises liability lawsuits commonly stem from slip and fall accidents, such as those that can occur on slippery grocery store floors, but victims can file suit seeking damages for personal injuries suffered in a variety of other situations.

If you have been injured on property that is owned or under the control of another party anywhere in California, including Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside counties as well as throughout Arizona, the aggressive personal injury lawyers at the law firm of Hodes Milman will evaluate your legal claim for free and determine whether you are entitled to receive financial damages.

Premises Liability Claims

Property owners need to be aware of potentially dangerous conditions on their property and should either correct them or properly warn others of the risks. In order to file a successful premises liability lawsuit, your attorneys must prove that the business or property owner was negligent in their duty to provide a reasonably safe environment. At Hodes Milman, our premises liability attorneys can build a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit that involve harm caused by:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Dog bite or animal attacks
  • Unsafe design or construction of buildings
  • Falling objects (e.g., merchandise falling off of shelf and striking customer)
  • Inadequate security
  • Overgrown landscaping or uneven walking surfaces causing fall
  • “Sick building syndrome” (exposure to toxic mold, asbestos, poor air quality, etc.)
  • Other dangerous conditions

If you believe you sustained an injury due to a property owner’s negligence, contact our California and Arizona area premises liability attorneys to discuss the possibility of filing a lawsuit to pursue compensation for your injuries and losses.
