The Brinton Firm

Los Angeles Tenant Attorneys



Liability for injuries that occur on the landlord’s property is a significant portion of our practice. We represent tenants and renters in lawsuits alleging personal injuries caused by dangerous or defective conditions in buildings or on land, actions seeking to abate nuisances that make people sick, cases involving assault and battery, “toxic torts” such as land contamination by oil leaks, chemical spills, asbestos, or mold contamination in your housing or commercial rental, and lawsuits seeking to hold the property owner liable for the condition of the property.


Personal injury cases are almost always about negligence by one person against another. However, not all personal injury – property injury cases have to do with negligence. These kinds of cases all fall under the same tort law which includes medical malpractice or intent to do another person physical or emotional harm for personal gain.

Thus, aside from negligence, it is possible to file a personal injury case if:


✔ If you are harmed on some else’s property
✔ If you are assaulted or injured
✔ If you are harmed by dangerous conditions in your apartment or business.
✔If dangerous environmental conditions like asbestos or lead paint injure you or your family,

Personal Injury

Under the state of California, there is a 2-year statute of limitation for personal injury- personal property damage (Civil Procedure section 335.1). This is the period wherein you are allowed to file a personal injury case. Once the two years has passed, the case can no longer be pursued and will be thrown out of the court. With government agencies, the statute of limitation is much shorter at 6 months (Cal Government Code Section 911.2).

Many times, a personal injury-property damage suit is complicated by the shared fault laws of California. This means that the person you claim caused you personal injury may turn around and say that you have partial responsibility. If this convinces the court or during a settlement hearing, then your compensation will be compute based on “comparative negligence.”

Personal Injury Law

Personal injury lawsuits are best handled by experienced personal injury lawyers because under California law, there are limits on the compensation amounts allowed. For instance, uninsured drivers cannot claim for non-economic damages regardless of the fault laws of the state but with a personal injury lawyer, it is possible to find the exception to this rule.

Also, if you want to negotiate for a settlement out of court, a personal injury attorney representing you will always be able to protect your interests first and foremost. In many personal injury cases, one or both parties prefer to settle, or pay an agreed amount, to avoid going to court.

A few questions you can use to help you choose your legal representative or personal injury attorney are:


  • Have you taken a case similar to mine and what was the outcome?
  • How long do you estimate my case will take whether settlement or court decision?
  • Do you have time to handle my case?
  • What’s the worst and best possible outcome?
  • May I have references of past cases?
  • How much is your fee?
