San Pedro-Long Beach Premises Liability Attorney Miriam J. Lebental
Landlords, property owners, property managers, attraction and cruise ship operators, and others in control of premises are responsible for providing occupants of and visitors to their properties with a reasonably safe environment.
They must take reasonable steps to maintain their properties and warn people of known hazards. When safety, security and maintenance are overlooked, innocent people can be seriously injured.
I have been a practicing personal injury attorney since 1979. My law firm handles premises liability claims for injuries caused by slip-and-fall accidents, trip-and-fall accidents and dog bites.
Have You Been Seriously Injured In A Slip-And-Fall Or Trip-And-Fall Accident?
Many people believe that slip-and-fall or slip-and-trip accidents are not very serious. For those who have sustained such an injury, however, the reality is that very serious and painful injuries do occur.
For instance, instinct causes people to brace themselves as they fall, which can have painful results. If you suddenly fall forward and brace yourself, the force impacted on your hands and arms is your entire body weight multiplied by the velocity of the fall. You may experience a fractured wrist or elbow, soft tissue injuries or even broken bones.
My law firm provides experienced legal help to people who have sustained injuries such as the following:
- Broken hips, knees and legs (Be aware that these injuries can also result in you favoring the other side of your body, causing longer-term effects requiring physical therapy.)
- Broken arms
- Broken wrists
- Broken elbows
- TOS (Thoracic Outlet Syndrome) and double crush syndrome of the shoulders
- Facial or tooth injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Back injuries
- Head trauma
Injuries From Dog Bites
Although many people have been bitten by a dog at some point, most do not experience serious injuries. However, dog bites can and do cause painful physical and psychological injuries to adults and children alike. Dog owners are responsible for complying with local leash laws and taking other reasonable steps to keep aggressive dogs away from passers-by and guests.
