Negligent Owners And Dangerous Properties
Property owners or residents have a legal obligation to maintain their spaces to such a degree that a reasonable person displaying an adequate degree of care would not be hurt while visiting. If you are hurt because someone else failed to maintain his or her property, or failed to take reasonable precautions to warn visitors of the danger, then you may be able to collect damages to help pay for your injuries.
At Randolph and Associates, we represent injured clients who are pursuing premises liability claims. We can analyze your situation, too, to determine if you have a viable claim. Contact our office toll free at 310-395-7900 to speak with one of our lawyers and find out your rights.
Don’t Pay For Someone Else’s Negligence
If you’ve been hurt in a premises liability case, we want you to focus on recovery, not on a hemorrhaging bank account. Our firm helps clients who have been hurt in myriad ways because of the negligence of a property owner, including cases involving:
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Inadequate security (lighting, personnel, locks, bars on windows)
- Elevator accidents
- Dog bites
- Deck or stairway collapses
- Faulty railings
- Amusement park accidents
Any premises liability case must prove that the property owner in question:
- Caused or neglected to remedy a dangerous condition
- Had knowledge of the condition prior to the accident
- Did nothing to warn reasonable visitors of the danger
In some cases, fault for the accident may not be clear-cut, but may involve several parties (including you) who all contributed to the conditions that led to the accident. In such cases, we take care to identify all the potential parties involved and determine what is known as “comparative fault,” or “contributory negligence.” Financial responsibility for the accident then gets divided according to the ratio of comparative fault.
