Property and Landlord Liability Attorneys
Under California law, a property owner must keep his or her property reasonably safe and warn others of any dangerous condition if such a condition exists. In addition, landlords must inspect the property whenever possible to prevent foreseeable injury to tenants and their guests.
If a person is injured due to the landlord’s breach of this duty to correct or remove a known or dangerous on-site condition, the landlord is liable for any financial losses the injured person incurs due to the injury, as well as compensation for pain and suffering.
In addition to eliminating hazardous conditions such as slippery floors or poorly lit hallways, property owners must also provide reasonable security measures to protect guests against criminal acts, when such acts are foreseeable.
Premises liability law is complex. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury due to a property owner’s negligence, the experienced California property injury lawyers at DeWitt Algorri & Algorri can help you recover the full amount of compensation you deserve.
Speak with an attorney before talking to an insurance representative.
If you were injured as a result of dangerous conditions that resulted from a landlord’s negligence, you may be contacted by an insurance representative who wants to learn more about the accident. Your statements may end up being used against you in court. It is always smart to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney first.
