Injured On Someone Else’s Property? Let a Long Beach Premises Liability Attorney Help
Business owners and property owners have a duty to make sure their premises are safe for customers and visitors. The failure to fulfill this duty is considered negligence. When a property owner, landlord, or controlling tenant is negligent in providing safe premises, or warning of potential dangers, innocent people can be seriously injured.
The term “premises liability” refers to the legal responsibility the owner and/or occupant of a property has for injuries someone sustains on their property. Premises liability does not relate solely to business or commercial property; it extends to residential properties as well.
Premises liability cases address injuries caused by any unsafe condition. Typically, they involve slip and fall accidents resulting in injuries ranging from sprains and fractured bones to traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries or death.
If you or a loved one was the victim of an accident on someone else’s property, it’s important to contact a premises liability attorney who can hold a negligent property owner accountable. The Law Office of Michael D. Waks has over 30 years experience representing victims in premises liability cases and helping them obtain compensation for medical bills, lost earnings and pain and suffering.

Premises Liability Cases Are Complex
Contrary to popular belief, premises liability cases are difficult to prove and require an experienced personal injury attorney to be successful. Your attorney needs to establish all of the necessary elements under California law in order to overcome the aggressive defenses the insurance company will mount. The formula for success in a premises liability case is:
Dangerous Condition exists on the property
+ Notice (property owner knew/should have known about the danger)
+ Injuries (someone is injured)
+ Causation (the injury was caused by the dangerous condition)
= Property owner is liable
Choose a Long Beach premises liability attorney who understands the complexity of these cases and can build the strongest claim, by among other things, conducting the necessary investigations and hiring the right technical experts.
