Premises Liability

Premises, or property liability, refers to situations where there is an inherent danger on land or buildings. It could be the absence of a handrail in a staircase, a slippery spot on a floor that could not be seen, a concealed hole in the grass, or simply a defect in landscaping or a building that an owner knew, or should have known, about but failed to fix. It could be lighting that is too dim to see where you are going, or it could be a step-off built too high in violation of the requirements of a building code; there are many different kinds of premises liability claims.

The judicial council of California has laid out the necessary elements that a person must prove in order to prevail on a premises liability claim:

1. That defendant owned/leased/occupied/controlled the property

2. That defendant was negligent in the use or maintenance of the property

3. That plaintiff was harmed

4. That defendant's negligence was a substantial factor in causing plaintiff's harm

Why Choose the Law Offices of Joseph C. Rosenblit / USCLG ?

What distinguishes my work from many other attorneys are two characteristics. First, I have made it my mission to listen carefully to my clients, respond quickly to their needs and to be there for them in a way that holds their interests above all others, including myself. Any situation that arises I will be available to respond quickly and effectively. I pride myself on caring enough about my clients, day or night, weekday or weekend, so that if they call I will do all in my power to help. That is my pledge to you.

Secondly, I have always brought a creative approach to litigation. A seemingly simple motor vehicle accident may, when one investigates deeper, lend itself to an allegation of an inherently dangerous roadside condition in the way the area was designed or even maintained. Unmarked dangerous curves or views obstructed by foliage are examples. If the injured party happens to be a senior citizen there may be a basis for alleging elder abuse violations. As an attorney with 25 years of experience in personal injury law I will look at all possibilities when I evaluate, investigate and ultimately litigate your case.
