Premises Liability | Aghabegian & Associates, PC Blog
When getting around a city like Los Angeles, Glendale, or Santa Monica, sidewalks are a must. They allow you to travel quickly and safely on foot without having to deal with Southern California’s crowded roadways. After all, driving everywhere is a hassle, especially when you just need to go down the street. Unfortunately, while sidewalks are meant to provide a safe stretch where pedestrians can walk without being too close to cars and other vehicles, if a sidewalk is not properly maintained, it can easily turn into a major health hazard.
Being injured at a friend’s house or your favorite restaurant can make some people feel awkward about pursuing compensation. Most people assume they would have to sue the property owner, who could be a family member, friend, or small business owner, to recover damages. However, many premises liability claims are covered under a liability insurance policy, meaning you will likely file an insurance claim rather than a lawsuit.
When you have been the victim of a criminal assault, you can only hope that justice will be served, and law enforcement will locate and prosecute the perpetrator. In Los Angeles County, the person committing the assault could face severe penalties if tried and convicted, but that will likely not compensate you for the injuries you have sustained.
