With nothing but a helmet protecting riders from other motorists on the road, the likelihood of a bicyclist suffering a serious injury in a collision is significant. If this happens to you or someone you know, our experienced attorneys are here to help.

Premise Liability and What This Means to You

By Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie on April 3, 2023

Post Image

Under California law, homeowners, landlords, and business owners have a duty to make their property safe and warn of any conditions that could foreseeably cause harm to others – this is called premises liability.

Property owners must regularly inspect their buildings and land to ensure it is safe to visit.

They can be held accountable for any injuries caused by their failure to provide reasonably safe conditions for lawful guests, patrons, or tenants.

Our team at Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie has won large settlements for many clients who experienced a slip and fall, been injured due to unsafe or broken stairs, tripped over raised sidewalks, or drowned in pools that were not properly fenced.

E-bike accidents continue to rise in all cities throughout Orange County, according to current hospital records. Excessive speed and unsafe riding are the primary causes of these accidents. Minors are riding e-bikes without knowing the rules of the road. Here are some basic reminders to keep you safe:

🚲 Ride your e-bike in the same direction as traffic

🚲 Wear a helmet

🚲 Passengers must be in a designated seat, do not share seats

🚲 Watch your speed, e-bikes go much faster than regular bikes and can cause significant injuries

Do you drive a leased vehicle?

By Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie on March 20, 2023

Post Image

What happens to your loan if your leased vehicle is involved in an accident and is a total loss? Previously, as the leasor of the vehicle, you would be entitled to keep any equity the vehicle may have when the total loss loan is paid to the lien holder. However, finance companies are now writing into their contracts that they get to keep any equity in the vehicle, leaving you without a car or a down payment to put into a new car. What do you think? Are these new practices fair?
