Los Angeles Public Property Liability Lawyers
Public Property Accident Claims in Southern California and Beyond
When accidents happen on public property, it is sometimes because of the dangerous conditions on the property itself. For example, a design defect on a highway can easily lead to accidents because a curve wasn’t banked properly. In other instances, the lack of properly installed and maintained guard rails along a cliff or drop-off could lead to accidents, injuries, and wrongful death.
While it can be difficult to navigate a claim against the government for public property hazards, our Los Angeles attorneys at Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP can provide the skilled representation you need to prove that there were dangerous conditions on the property. Aside from representing clients who were harmed because of design flaws on roads and highways, we also represent those injured because of the negligence of CALTRANS workers in highway construction zones.

Navigating Premises Liability Claims Against the Government
When a disproportionate number of accidents occur at the same intersection, sidewalk, or bend in the highway, the design of the road itself may be at fault. Under premises liability laws, a property owner may be held accountable for failing to maintain safe conditions on the road or in the area – even if that property owner is a state or local government agency. While a public entity may not be liable for your injuries in every case, there are some exceptions that allow you to sue the government, thanks to the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) and the California Tort Claims Act (CTCA).
Of course, it can also be difficult to tell if the accident that injured you was caused by a dangerous or defective road condition. A lawyer who knows the applicable laws and understands all the responsibilities of governmental entities can analyze the facts and determine whether you have a valid negligence claim.
Not All Accidents Are Caused by Vehicles or Drivers
Some of the most common public property liability claims:
- Inadequate drainage that led to excessive pooling of water on a California freeway
- Dangerous, defective, or missing guardrails on the road
- Defective or missing gates and signals at railway crossings
- Failure to place protective barriers at a gore point (a triangular area where traffic lanes merge or split, marked by solid white lines)
- Broken staircases or wheelchair ramps at a government building
- Hazardous conditions at government buildings
- Defectively-designed roads that make accidents more likely
