Hazardous conditions like faulty wiring, improperly stacked merchandise and loose carpeting cause accidents resulting in 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, along with the people 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 conditions.

If the owner or occupier of the property knew of a hazardous condition or activity that led to your injury and failed to take timely, reasonable actions to protect you from it, you may be qualified to recover full compensation for all harm you have suffered. You should immediately get help from an experienced Van Nuys premises liability attorney.
