Defending Premises Liability Claims

Capable representation for landlords, property managers and insurers

The premises liability attorneys at Bradley & Gmelich LLP draw on years of experience defending private security companies and private security guards to aggressively defend premises liability matters with thoughtful and innovative methods. Although we certainly handle our fair share of classic premises liability cases, such as slip-and-falls or trip-and-falls, we make full use of our broad range of litigation skills. We have been successful in exposing fraudulent and inappropriate claims, as well as showing a lack of a dangerous condition or inadequate security liability in the first place. Our success in this area is largely due to the wealth of litigation experience our attorneys possess and apply to any given case.

Capable defense to premises liability claims

We have mounted a vigorous and successful defense against a wide range of premises liability claims, including:

  • Construction site accidents
  • Explosions
  • Falling equipment
  • Inadequate parking site security
  • Negligent security
  • Poor maintenance
  • Slip/trip and fall
  • Third party criminal attacks
  • Landlord’s use of force
  • Wet floors
  • Tender of defense and indemnity defense

Our clients in Los Angeles are commercial health and fitness club owners, property owners, property managers, private security companies, contractors, retail stores, parking garage operators, maintenance companies and municipalities. Our experience in this area extends from basic negligence issues to complex disputes involving intentional torts, vicarious liability, course and scope of employment, and ownership and control over the premises involved.

Sound advice helps prevent premises liability litigation

At Bradley & Gmelich LLP, we pride ourselves on being proactive. We employ preventive measures with our clients to help them avoid litigation altogether. Our business law attorneys review client operations, with a focus on policies, procedures and best practices. Our many years of experience tell us that preventing a lawsuit is far less expensive than litigating one. However, when our clients face actions, claims of negligence and lawsuits, our attorneys have the trial experience and are ready and able to defend against allegations of premises liability.

Talented appellate lawyers drive our success

Our litigators benefit from the advice of our appellate lawyers, who often work in partnership with our trial attorneys when it appears that a matter might proceed on appeal. Our appellate lawyers have a strong background in general civil litigation. Consequently, they are able to help draft motions for summary judgment with an eye on the appellate ramifications before the matter is even heard by the trial court. The depth and range of our experience increases efficiency in our pretrial and trial work. Our appellate attorneys are always available to assist our trial counsel, whether before, during or after trial. If an appeal becomes necessary, our appellate attorneys provide clients with skilled representation. Our success on appeal has won our firm an enviable reputation.
