We Handle the Full Range of Premises Liability Claims

Premises liability is an area of law that holds a property owner or property occupier (landlord, business, organization, etc.) legally responsible for certain torts that happen on the bounds of their premises. At Ourfalian & Ourfalian, we have considerable experience representing victims in a wide range of premises liability cases. Our Southern California premises liability attorneys are prepared to help you with:


  • Slip and Fall Accidents: Slip and falls and trip and falls are among the most common premises liability claims in California. A business or property owner in Los Angeles County may be liable for a person’s slip and fall injuries if the accident happened because of negligence. For example, if a California store failed to clean up a dangerously slippery spill after being repeatedly notified by other customers, it may be liable for a resulting slip and fall. Contact our California slip and fall accident lawyers for a review of your case.
  • Inadequate or Improper Maintenance Claims: Property owners and property occupiers in California should take basic measures to keep their premises in proper working order. The failure to do so could give rise to a premises liability claim on the basis of inadequate maintenance. If you or your family member was harmed because of a property owner’s failure to conduct maintenance, our California premises liability attorneys can help.
  • Negligent Security Claims: In some contexts, California businesses and property owners have a proactive obligation to take certain security precautions. A negligent security claim is a type of premises liability claim filed against a defendant that allegedly failed to provide adequate security given the circumstances. For example, a hotel in Glendale, CA may be liable for injuries sustained as a result of a criminal assault if that attack happened because a guest was given a room without proper working door locks.
  • Dog Bite Injuries: Dog owners must protect members of the public from safety threats posed by their animals. California has a strict liability law for dog bite injuries—meaning a dog owner may be liable for a dog bite without a finding of negligence. You can also bring a common law dog bite injury claim in California. Additional compensation may be available if the dog owner (or another party) acted in a negligent manner. If you or your child was injured by a dangerous dog in Southern California, our Glendale premises liability attorneys can help.

An Overview of California’s Premises Liability Laws

It is important to clarify that a business or property owner in Southern California is not automatically responsible for an accident that occurs on their premises. With limited exceptions—such as for some dog bite incidents—premises liability claims in California are based on the legal theory of negligence. To hold another party legally liable for your injuries through a premises liability claim, you must be prepared to prove the following four things:

  1. The defendant was in control of the property when the accident occurred.
  2. The defendant was negligent (careless or reckless) in the use or maintenance of that property.
  3. You suffered real harm as a consequence of the accident.
  4. The negligence of the defendant was a substantial factor in causing your injuries.

All accidents that occur on another party’s premises require a comprehensive investigation. You can be sure that businesses, property owners, and their commercial insurance companies will waste little time investigating an accident to build their legal defense. Do not fall behind in the claims process. Consult with an experienced Southern California premises liability attorney.

What Compensation Can You Recover in a Premises Liability Claim in California?

If you sustained a serious injury due to the negligence of a business or property owner in Southern California, it is imperative that you are able to access the full and fair financial compensation that you need to pay your bills.
