Hazardous conditions like faulty wiring, improperly stacked merchandise and loose carpeting cause accidents leading to major injury. Businesses and property owners have a vital responsibility to create safe environments for their customers and visitors. This also includes walkways and parking lots, along with individuals they employ. Workers are there to serve and at times, even protect individuals who visit their places of business. The lawyers at Drake Law Firm, are experienced in the legal responsibilities and liabilities of companies or organizations that fail to provide these safe environments.

If the owner or occupant of the property knew of a hazardous condition or activity that caused your injury and neglected to take timely, reasonable actions to protect you from it, you might be eligible to recover full compensation for all harm you have suffered. You should immediately get help from an experienced Topanga premises liability lawyer.
