Premises Liability Archives

Liability insurance may help when accidents happen

There are many different types of liability insurance in California. Some common types include a homeowner’s insurance policy, auto insurance for drivers and general liability insurance for businesses. Anyone may become liable for an accident at any time, making liability insurance a good investment when policyholders can count on this to pick up the slack.

Understanding the value of maintaining your commercial property

Owning and operating a company in California can be hard work, especially if you have the desire to make your business one that is frequented by loyal customers who appreciate your organization's products and services. An interesting aspect of keeping your business well-maintained includes keeping the premises manicured in order to prevent unnecessary hazards from harming your customers. At Callahan and Blaine, we understand the risks and challenges of operating a business and are here to help. 

Reviewing a property owner's duty of care

You might assume that whenever you enter onto another's property in Orange County, the owner of the property must see to your safety while there. The same assumption has been shared by many of those who have come to us here at Callahan & Blaine, yet they (like you may be) have been surprised to learn that is not always the case. Liability for injuries suffered on another's property depends largely on the circumstances of why you are there in the first place. 

Helping older adults avoid falls and injuries

Slip-and-fall accidents are fairly common among California residents, especially those in older age brackets. Falls may lead to severe injuries that may take a long time to heal. Both individuals and companies may face legal responsibility for accidents that happen on their property. There are many factors that may increase the risk of slip-and-fall accidents. Eliminating these common issues may help protect older adults from falls and related injuries.

Common misconceptions about premises liability

Sometimes having an accident in California may only cause minor injuries, while other times it may lead to death. Whatever the outcome of the accident, FindLaw notes that the non-owner residents and property owners are responsible for maintaining a safe property. This responsibility is known as premises liability.

How can I keep my property safe for the mail carrier?

Being a mail career is not generally thought of as a hazardous job, but sometimes it can be, and you may not have to look farther than your front yard in Orange County to see why. Properties can hold a number of hazards for a person trying to deliver the mail, so you want to be aware of these problems and try to correct them so that a mail carrier does not suffer injury on your California property.

Different ways to make stairs safer

Stairs and steps are a common feature of many homes and buildings in Orange County, which is why anyone who owns a property should take great care that their stairs are as safe as possible for kids and adults to use, as taking a fall on stairs can seriously injure or possibly even kill someone. Fortunately, you can decrease the risk of catastrophic injury on your stairs by making some crucial improvements on your California property.

What is an attractive nuisance?

It is hard not worry about your kids when you are not around. There are, after all, several attractions and elements out there in Orange County that they may find appealing yet that you know can be dangerous. Your hope is that the owners of the properties on which such attractions are found understand that children in particular may be drawn to them, and thus take the necessary steps to restrict unauthorized access to them. If such property owners do not do this, is there a way for you to hold them accountable for any injuries your kids sustain from such attractions? 

Moving forward after a slip-and-fall accident

From auto accidents to vicious dogs, people are hurt because of the carelessness of others in many ways. Unfortunately, some people find themselves with serious injuries after falling down because of a slippery surface that was not addressed appropriately. At Callahan & Blaine, we understand how hard life can be for those who have fallen down in California. Worse yet, some people decide not to speak up because they do not realize their legal options or are worried that people will not take them seriously. If you have been hurt after slipping because of someone else's negligence, you should immediately go over your rights.

What should I do if I’m bitten by a dog?

California dog owners must keep their pets under control at all times. Failure to do so can result in significant injury if a dog lashes out at an unsuspecting victim, especially if the dog is overly aggressive. If you’ve been bitten by a dog it’s important to know what steps to take to ensure your injury doesn’t become even more severe.
