DANGEROUS CONDITIONS OF PROPERTY

A person, firm, corporation or public entity which owns or occupies property is negligent if the property is not kept in a reasonably safe condition, and that unsafe condition causes injury to another. Injuries that occur at either a place of business or on a person's private property are far too common. These types of cases can include slip and falls, inadequate security, construction or contractor defects, and animal bites. Those in control of the property must use reasonable care to discover any unsafe conditions and to repair, replace, or give adequate warning of anything that could be reasonably expected to harm others.

There are many factors to consider in determining whether a property owner was negligent, or whether the property was in a dangerous condition to users of that property. These factors include whether the owner was aware of, or knew of, the potential harm, whether the owner allowed a dangerous condition on its property, whether it was reasonably foreseeable that an injury would occur from the condition, whether the owner should have taken measures to avoid the risk, and whether the owner failed to take reasonable steps to secure its property, even against criminal acts by third parties. Typically, the question is whether in the management of his or her property, the possessor of land has acted as a reasonable person under all the circumstances, to prevent harm to users of his or her property.


Attorney Michael Sabongui has litigated numerous dangerous condition and premises liability cases successfully. These claims have included falling in potholes, slipping or tripping and falling, dangerous roadways, inadequate security, defective elevators, and other premises liability claims. Mr. Sabongui is very familiar with all defenses that will be asserted by other attorneys in these types of cases, and is aware of the pitfalls and difficulties. Accordingly, he has the knowledge and experience to aggressively obtain the best results possible. If you believe you have been hurt because property was not kept in a reasonably safe condition, or because adequate warning was not provided, we will evaluate your claim and aggressively take on your case.
