Dangerous Premises Claims

Success in the Hard-to-Prove Arena of Premises Liability

A business or property owner can be held legally responsible for serious injuries that occur on their property when the injury is caused by a dangerous property condition. These premises liability cases arise in a variety of contexts. The law offices of Chet R. Bhavsar is adept at keeping the responsibility on owners by proving that they knew of the dangerous condition or should have known. We have prevailed in all types of premises liability claims:

  • Trip and falls or slip and falls caused by slippery surfaces, raised surfaces, drop- offs, broken stairs and other hidden hazards
  • Construction defect injuries linked to building code violations or poor maintenance and repair
  • Falls and other injuries at a hotel, resort or amusement park
  • Attacks, assault or robbery enabled by poor security measures

While the most common premises liability case is a slip and fall accident or a trip and fall accident, these injuries are by no means the only kind of premises negligence case that our firm handles. Premises liability injuries may also stem from other unsafe or dangerous conditions on the premises, which include:

  • Inadequate or defective lighting conditions
  • Improperly maintained equipment
  • Dog bites and animal attacks
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Other dangerous conditions of the premises
  • Criminal activity that a landlord could have prevented
  • Construction activities at a property that result in hidden dangers to visitors
  • Dangerous work activities that take place on the property that result in harm to
  • Improper stacking of heavy products on shelves at large warehouse stores
  • Improper security at events

Retail stores are not the only types of property owners that can be held liable in a
premises liability case. The following types of entities can be a defendant in a premises
liability case:

  • Public entities, like a City or school district
  • Homewoners
  • Building Owners

Even where the property owner was at fault, the owner may claim that the hazard was and open and obvious condition, a trivial defect, that you had fair warning or that you were also careless. We keep the focus and pressure on the at-fault property owner. The law offices of Chet R. Bhavsar has handled a wide range of premises liability cases, with injuries ranging from simple muscle strains to complex factures, paralysis and wrongful death claims.
