Let Our Ventura Injury Lawyer Fight For You!

If you or someone in your family was hurt on another person's property, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Talk to an Oxnard personal injury lawyer from our firm, The Law Offices of Schurmer & Wood, to learn more about your rights and legal options at this time and how the premises liability laws in the state of California apply to your situation. Founded in 1968, our firm has a long and proud history of protecting our clients' rights in complex premises liability cases.

Many different accidents may fall under the scope of premises liability law, including those caused by:

  • Swimming pool drowning / near-drowning
  • Broken or unmarked stairs and other stair-related accidents
  • Animal attacks, including dog bites
  • Missing bannisters or railings
  • Negligent or insufficient security
  • Missing "wet floor" signs
  • Unmarked holes or obstacles
  • Collapsed ceiling, floor, building
  • Falling objects
  • Electrical problems, including improper wiring

  • Icy or wet sidewalks
  • Broken sidewalks
  • Mold and mildew inhalation
  • Dangerous fumes
  • Broken glass

Do I have a valid premises liability claim?

The owner of the property where you or your family member was injured is not necessarily responsible for your injuries. There are four separate elements that must be present to establish grounds for a valid premises liability claim. You must show that the individual in question did own or control the property where your injury occurred, that owner was negligent in maintaining the property, that you were injured, and that the owner's negligence significantly contributed to or caused your injury.

Whether the property owner was a private individual or a government agency, our team at The Law Offices of Schurmer & Wood is prepared to handle your case and protect your rights. We can examine the case and work hard to make sure that you receive the compensation you are entitled to in order to cover your medical bills, pain and suffering, and other economic and non-economic damages. In most cases, the property owner's homeowner insurance will cover you, so you do not have to worry about putting a financial burden on the owner, which is a common concern among our clients who suffered their injuries on the properties of friends or acquaintances.
