Personal Injury Firm in Los Angeles
All property owners in the city of Pasadena, including private property owners as well as the government, have a legal responsibility to ensure that their premises are kept safe. Thousands of people are injured every year after slipping and falling as a result of hazardous conditions on someone else’s residential or commercial property.
Fortunately, many slip and fall accidents only result in minor injuries. Some incidents, however, can cause serious injuries or death.
