Unsafe conditions like faulty wiring, poorly stacked merchandise and loose carpeting cause accidents leading to serious injury. Businesses and property owners have an important responsibility to create safe environments for their customers and visitors. This also includes walkways and parking lots, in addition to individuals they employ. Employees are there to serve and sometimes, even protect individuals that go to their places of business. The lawyers at Drake Law Firm, are experienced in the legal responsibilities and liabilities of businesses or organizations that fail to offer these safe environments.
You can easily sustain injury through no fault of your own when you go to property such as a store, office building, motel or apartment complex. If the owner or occupant of the property knew of a hazardous condition or activity that caused your injury and neglected to take timely, practical steps to protect you from it, you might be eligible to recover full compensation for all damage you have suffered. You should immediately get help from an experienced Burbank premises liability attorney.
