Our Attorneys Handle Premises Liability Claims In Encinitas and Surrounding Areas
Have you suffered an injury at a store or some other business? If the injury was caused by the property owner’s negligence, you may be able to file a claim for compensation. These claims against property owners are referred to as premises liability claims. At Nield Law Group, APC, in Encinitas, California, our attorneys are skilled at resolving these personal injury claims.
Where Were You Hurt?
Our lawyers handle claims involving accidents that occurred at retail stores, grocery stores, restaurants, bars, gas stations, hotels and other businesses.
Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents are one of the most common premises liability claims. These are cases in which the victim slipped and fell on a puddle or slippery surface in an aisle or walkway. The slippery surface may have been the result of a leak in a ceiling or cooler, a spill of some sort, or water or ice being tracked in from outside. We stand up for the rights of people who have suffered head injuries, back injuries, broken bones and other injuries in slipping accidents.
While many premises liability cases involve injuries that occurred to customers of businesses, residents of apartment buildings and other rental properties may also be able to file claims against property owners if the property owner acted negligently and caused harm. These claims may involve anything from falls on slippery surfaces to falls down dangerous staircases to assaults that resulted from improper or insufficient security measures.
Property Owner Negligence
The key to a successful claim is proving that the property owner either knew or should have known about a slippery surface or another hazard. We work with investigators and other specialists to get the facts we need to prove that the property owner was at fault. We build strong cases designed to get compensation for accident victims.
