RIGHTS IN A PREMISES LIABILITY CASE
We work to achieve the best possible settlement for our clients.
When you are on another person’s property, they have a responsibility to keep you safe and free from injury. If their property is inadequately maintained, you can easily get hurt. If you have been injured in a premises liability accident it may be wise to get an attorney to help. The lawyers at Kalfayan Merjanian are experienced in premises liability lawsuits and they can help recover compensation for injuries sustained.
The laws for premises liability state that property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe at all times. When you visit another person’s premises, it is considered that you are an invited guest. They should be aware of any dangers and do their part to protect or warn you of these hazards. When you are injured on someone else’s property, or if the property owner was negligent and failed to keep the property safe, you may have the right to compensation.
The lawyers at Kalfayan Merjanian work with insurance companies to negotiate the best settlement possible on behalf of their injured clients. They know how to fight premises liability claims and pursue the maximum compensation for their clients. If a settlement can’t be reached, the lawyers at Kalfayan Merjanian have dozens of years of combined litigation experience and will pursue the claim in court.
Types of Premises Liability Cases
There are a variety of ways that you can be hurt on another person’s premises. All areas of the property should be safe or marked as a hazard during your entire stay. If you were to visit a location and the weather changed during your visit, it is the responsibility of the premises owner to make the area safe for visitors. This may include maintaining wet or slippery floors and sidewalks. Owners should also ensure your safety with proper lighting and visibility, so you do not hurt yourself when arriving or departing the property.
Some of the most common premises liability issues include:
- Slip and falls
- Weather-related accidents
- Poor property maintenance
- Defective conditions (ie. defective stairs, railings, sidewalks, etc.)
- Unmarked hazardous conditions
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Dog bites
- Swimming pool dangers
- Amusement park hazards
- Water accidents
- Chemical and fume injuries
The lawyers at CA Trial Attorneys first work to prove the negligence of a property owner in a client’s premises liability case. They build a case that establishes the property owner’s fault and will pursue a claim in litigation if a settlement can’t be reached.
If you are injured in a premises liability accident, be sure to take photos of the scene to show the owner’s negligence. These photos could be valuable in your court case and may help you receive the maximum settlement award for your injuries.
