Van Nuys, which is part of the sprawling metropolis of Los Angeles, is situated in Southern California’s bustling San Fernando Valley.
Measuring roughly 9 square miles in size, Van Nuys is home to more than 136,440 people. Originally founded in 1911 as a small community on the outskirts of Los Angeles, the neighborhood was later annexed in 1915.
Bordered by North Hills, Panorama City, Valley Glen and Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys has grown from humble beginnings to become a thriving community that is filled with parks, recreation and retail centers.
Because residents of Van Nuys are constantly accessing any number of area amenities, it is conceivable that they may experience some sort of premises liability incident, like a slip and fall, which could result in personal injury.
Premises Liability Claims in the Los Angeles Area
Property owners in Los Angeles are required to maintain safe premises conditions for those walking, shopping or attending events on the property. This is also referred to as non-delegable duty, since owners cannot blame unsafe conditions on janitors or weather. Anytime a dangerous condition occurs that causes slip, trip, fall or other injury, the property owner is liable.
However, it is important to note that owners are not considered liable if an individual is not paying attention to where they are going, or if there were not conditions that the owners were responsible for. When dangerous circumstances arise, properties are required to post warnings and correct the issue within a reasonable amount of time.
Typically, these types of cases come down to one thing – negligence, which is best defined as an unreasonable human activity that results in injury. For example, if a person slips and falls on a puddle while walking through the frozen section of the grocery store – a puddle that was not cleaned up in a reasonable amount of time – the store would be subject to injury liability.
Because these types of claims tend to be more complex, winning premises liability cases in a trial setting requires careful investigation, in order to prove negligence by another party or organization – something that can only be handled by a qualified personal injury attorney.
