Lake Forest Slip & Fall Accident Lawyers Serving Orange County
The most common premises liability claims, injuries from slips and falls occur when a property owner is negligent in the upkeep and care of their property. These cases are often complicated, however, and it can be hard to prove fault. A successful claim must prove the link between an owner and the unsafe condition, including a lack of warning to tenants or visitors.
Merely owning or occupying the land does not equal strict liability for all injuries sustained and there must be provable negligence to determine liability.
The Lake Forest premises liability attorney from our firm understand the complexities and nuances of these cases. We represent plaintiffs in suits against negligent owners of commercial, residential, and public property.
