If you are injured on someone else’s property, the property owner may be responsible to pay for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.  Premises liability accidents are often caused by bad roads, dangerous sidewalks, dog bites, exposed wiring, poor security, and much more.

It is crucial that you retain a premises liability lawyer as soon as possible so that your rights are protected, and your case is handled properly. If you were hurt on someone else’s property, it is nearly impossible to get any recovery without an experienced premises liability lawyer, let alone a fair recovery.  Let us help you get the recovery you deserve.

Below are examples of premises liability cases we have successfully litigated.

Dangerous Sidewalksdangerous sidewalk lawyer

Tree roots often destroy sidewalks years after the trees are planted.  People walking down the street in the evening can’t see sidewalk damage.  Sometimes people are forced to choose between walking in the street or walking over a broken sidewalk.  Other times, people do not notice sidewalk damage until they have tripped.  A city may be liable for a injuries due to a damaged sidewalk.

A person with a claim against a public entity has a limited time to file.  If you or anyone else has a claim against a public entity, you should contact a personal injury lawyer right away.

Dog Bites

Dog bites can be serious.  According to the American Humane Association, there are about 4.7 million dog bites in the United States each year.  Nearly 800,000 require medical attention.  50% of dog attacks involve children under 12.

If you or a loved one suffered a dog bite, we can help you.  The first thing you must do is seek medical attention.  Untreated dog bites can lead to serious infections and disfigurement.  Report all dog bites to your local animal control agency.

We will help you protect your legal rights and get the justice you deserve.  California has a dog bite statute.  That means that the owner of a dog is responsible for the damages suffered by someone who is bitten by that dog “in a public place or lawfully in a private place.”    The owner is responsible even if the dog does not have a history of viciousness or the owner doesn’t know of the viciousness.

If you or a loved one has been bitten by a dog , call us and find out your rights.

Slip And Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are often caused by puddles of liquid, such as water or oil.  They also occur when the ground is unreasonably slippery, or there is a sudden change in elevation.  Falling can cause very serious injuries, including fractures.

All Other Accidents

We handle novel premises liability cases.  For example, we recovered $110,000 for a woman trampled by her spooked horse.  The defendant was filming a low budget horror movie without a permit on a narrow, isolated horse trail.  Our client asked the defendant to stop filming long enough to let her horse pass, because the horse was agitated by monster costumes, screaming, and film equipment.  The defendant refused, and continued filming.  The horse spooked, tossed our client to the ground, and trampled her, which resulted in serious injuries.
