Motor Vehicle Accident Claims
Unlike skateboards, longboards are not frequently used in designated parks. Instead, they are most often used on public roads. Longboarders have every right to use the roads in Los Angeles. Southern California drivers have to take proper care to look out for the safety of longboard riders. Unfortunately, not all motorists in the Los Angeles area drive safely. If you were riding a longboard, and you were injured in a Los Angeles car accident, you may be able to bring a claim against the responsible driver’s insurance company. If your longboarding accident occurred because of the reckless or careless conduct of the driver, then you are entitled to financial compensation for your injuries.
Premises Liability Claims
While less common than car accident claims, injured longboarders may also be able to bring a premises liability claim against a negligent business or property owner. These types of longboarding accident claims can be especially complex. If you believe that your longboarding accident occurred because of the negligent actions of a property owner, you should consult with an experienced Los Angeles premises liability lawyer immediately. Your lawyer will be able to help you review your accident and assess your legal options. If the property owner created a dangerous situation, and that safety hazard contributed to your accident, you deserve financial compensation.
Product Liability Claims
Companies that manufacture and sell longboards and longboarding accessories have a legal duty to ensure that they are only putting safe products onto the market. If your injury occurred because your longboard or longboarding equipment was defective, you should consult with an experienced Los Angeles product liability attorney as soon as possible. You may able to hold the negligent company legally liable for your longboarding accident injuries.
