Every day most people spend a good deal of time on someone else’s property. As part of our daily routine, we run to the supermarket, stroll through the mall, drop the kids off at school, catch a movie at the theater, or eat out at our favorite restaurant. Since we spend so much time doing these types of activities, the likelihood of getting injured while on someone else’s property is probably higher than you might expect. If you do suffer an injury while on someone else’s property you may be able to pursue compensation for your medical treatment, and other expenses from the property owner. This is because the property owner is responsible for making sure that the premises are safe, and their failure to do so as the result of irresponsibility (negligence) forms a connection to the injuries that you suffered.

These types of claims are made under premises liability law, which holds landowners legally accountable for accidents and injuries that occur on their properties. The San Diego Premises Liability Lawyers at the Nakase Personal Injury Law Firm are experienced professionals capable of handling all types of premises liability cases.

Slip and Fall Accidents

We’ve all seen the yellow caution signs while shopping at the grocery store or walking through the mall, and there is a good reason for them. Immediately we are alerted to some type of hazard in the area or on the floor and we steer clear to avoid a potentially dangerous situation. Slip and fall accidents are probably the most well-known and frequently occurring type of premises liability claims. In these situations, the caution warning was either non-existent, or insufficient to prevent a slip and fall accident caused by liquids spilled on to the floor. These types of accidents can also be caused unseen objects left in aisles, raised flooring, polished floors, and other dangerous conditions. If you have suffered an injury from a slip and fall accident, the San Diego Premises Liability Lawyers at Nakase Personal Injury Law Firm can evaluate your case and determine if you have grounds for legal action.

Amusement Park Injuries

Amusement parks are for having fun, and no one wants to think about the possibility of getting injured while enjoying a roller coaster or waterslide ride. Yet this occurs quite frequently, leaving those injured at a loss to determine how to pursue some type of personal injury claim. Who is responsible? Who is the owner of the property? The San Diego Premises Liability Lawyers at Nakase Personal Injury Law Firm can determine the responsible party for your injuries and determine the best course of action to pursue your claim. Our attorneys are experienced, skilled professionals in handling these types of cases.

Swimming Pool Accidents

Swimming is a fun activity that many people enjoy family and friends. Often, we simply just assume that the proper safety precautions are in place at a swimming pool to prevent a slip and fall accident. When using a public pool, or one located on another’s property, the property owner owes you a duty of care. In other words, it’s the property owner’s responsibility to make sure that the area is safe. This is a serious responsibility because, if you or a family member are involved in a slip and fall accident at a pool the consequences could be catastrophic, resulting in serious injuries including near-drowning, or the loss of a loved one to drowning. When this occurs, the property owner has breached its duty of care to you. If you or a loved one have been injured in a swimming pool accident, the Nakase Personal Injury Law Firm can help protect your legal rights and fight for the maximum compensation for your injuries.

Escalator Accidents

We routinely use escalators at shopping malls, office buildings, and other venues without giving them much thought. However, escalators are complex mechanical devices which require regular inspection, servicing and maintenance to ensure they are in proper working order. When this process breaks down, the use of an improperly inspected, poorly maintained or repaired escalator poses a very real danger and can result in serious injuries. If you have fallen from an escalator and been injured, you may have a premises liability claim against the property owner.  We can help! Contact the San Diego Premises Liability Lawyers at the Nakase Personal Injury Law Firm today at (619) 550-1321 to discuss the details of your escalator accident and let us determine if you have grounds for a premises liability case.

Injuries Caused by Inadequate Security

Many people just assume that they are safe while shopping at the mall, working out at the gym, or watching a game at a sports stadium. However, you could become injured because of an incident which may have been prevented through the deployment of adequate security. For example, a fight that breaks out between various patrons at a sporting event causing injury to bystanders, or a shopping mall patron is physically assaulted while walking to their car in the parking lot. California property owners have a responsibility to protect customers and lawful visitors through the use of reasonable security measures. Reasonable security measures can include the use of security cameras, security guards, and locks. Often times these reasonable security measures are either lacking, or non-existent. If you were injured at a property, it may be due to inadequate security measures. You could have a valid claim against the property owner. The San Diego Premises Liability Lawyers at the Nakase Personal Injury Law Firm have the expertise to evaluate the specific facts of your case and determine if your injuries were the result of inadequate security measures, and help you pursue a claim against the property owner.

While it may sound easy, the reality is that proving a landowner’s negligence and liability for your injuries can be a complex and intricate undertaking. It requires the skills of an experienced San Diego Premises Liability Attorney. But no worries, at the Nakase Personal Injury Law Firm we have those skills! If you were injured call us.
