Types of premises liability accidents in Orange County, CA

- Slip and fall accidents. From hotels to restaurants, slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere, any time, and for a variety of reasons, including: wet floors, poor maintenance of buildings or walkways, low lighting, hazardous construction zones, or safety code violations.

- Dangerous conditions. Also known as "negligent security," these accidents occur when poor security or safety precautions result in personal injury to you or a loved one. For example, a lack of security guards or camera surveillance systems in a parking lot might result in a violent assault, or a lack of fencing or warning signs near a public pool could cause an accidental drowning or other swimming pool-related injury.

Dog bite injuries. Aggressive dogs can cause serious injury in Orange County, especially to children, and statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggest that up to one in five dog bite victims requires emergency medical treatment. If you or a loved one was bitten by a dog, you may have grounds for a dog bite lawsuit against the animal's owner.
