Personal Injury Attorney Los Angeles: Premises Liability - Trip and Fall
At Fassonaki Law Firm, P.C., a Los Angeles personal injury law firm, we recently represented a client, a senior, who suffered a trip-and-fall incident--injuring her knee. Our client was in extreme pain due to her knee injury.
Our legal team at Fassonaki Law Firm P.C. investigated the site and details of the incident and collected all the relevant evidence which proved that our client was not at fault. Despite the visibility of the hazard, no measures were taken to address it. The absence of any warning signs or barriers in the area further indicated a failure to fulfill the duty of care owed to visitors.
As per the California Civil Code § 1714, the owner of real property is under a legal duty to exercise ordinary care and skill in the management of their person and property to
prevent causing harm to others on or near the premises. This duty of care is owed to all visitors present, including our client. The property owner should have acted as a responsible person to avoid injury to others.
Thanks to the efforts of our team, we achieved a resounding victory. As a result of our dedicated work, the adverse party's insurer agreed to pay compensation to our client.
