Holding Negligent Property Owners Responsible For Your Suffering

Last updated on February 7, 2024

When you step onto someone else’s property, you have the right to expect a safe environment. Unfortunately, accidents happen, and when they do, our experienced team at the Law Offices of Eric Hershler is here for you. With over 35 years of experience, our Los Angeles-based team brings a compassionate and empathetic approach to every case, fighting tirelessly to help you obtain the compensation you deserve after an injury.

Your case details will vary depending on the type of property on which the accident occurred. Liability for an accident on a commercial property will have its own complications. For instance, these accidents require that the owner or possessor was either the cause of the injury or ignored their responsibilities as a caretaker. Our team has the background to build your case and the skills necessary to provide the representation you need. We are prepared to fight any defense strategies that may arise in your claim, including allegations that the liable party had no awareness of the danger, that the plaintiff contributed to the factors that caused their injuries, or that the incident in question was unforeseeable.

Causes And Consequences Of Injuries On Unsafe Property

Premises liability covers a range of incidents that can occur on both privately owned and government-owned property. These accidents can lead to serious injuries, from broken bones and head traumas to spinal injuries and even lifelong disabilities. No matter the injury, we are ready to stand by your side.

There are many different scenarios and environments that can create conditions for a catastrophic fall or injury, including:

  • Falls in a shopping area, often resulting from unattended spills
  • Falls in an apartment, which can be the result of poor lighting, uneven walkways or loose carpeting
  • Sidewalk falls that happen because of cracked or uneven sidewalks or other trip hazards
  • Amusement park injuries caused by maintenance issues
  • Shopping area or business building Injuries caused by elevator or escalator problems
  • Injuries caused by building fire or structural collapse

Even though an injury may not seem serious at first, these incidents can result in a victim suffering broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, permanent nerve damage and paralysis. When the consequences of an injury can last for a lifetime, our goal is to ensure that you receive fair compensation that reflects those consequences.

If your accident occurred on public, government-owned property, you can still file a personal injury claim for damages. However, the process for filing a lawsuit against a government entity differs from filing against a private business. At the Law Offices of Eric Hershler, we have experience helping clients file claims against entities in the Los Angeles area. You can trust us to guide you through the process.
