Premises Liability Suit Settled after USC Frat Party Drone Strike

On behalf of The Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg Posted in Premises Liability

Premises liability lawsuits arise when a person is injured, perhaps fatally, in an accident on property belonging to another person or entity. While working as Riverside premises liability attorneys over the past few decades, our expert lawyers have obtained significant experience in successfully handling all manner of premises liability cases, although, as new technology becomes available, so too do new types of premises liability accident.

Take, for example, the recently settled lawsuit relating to a woman being hit on the head by a drone near a frat party on the USC campus in 2015. The drone, which was being used to take photographs of those attending the party held by the Pi Kappa Phi Delta Rho Chapter, and Perfect Event Inc., fell onto Alina Pituch’s head when she arrived at the event around 11 pm on October 3, 2015. Pituch suffered head injuries and was led from the scene by friends, bleeding profusely from a head wound. It has been reported that, aside from permanent scarring, the injuries have also affected her ability to concentrate on and complete her studies to the same standard she could produce previously.

After a court case, Pituch, the fraternity who organized the party, and the events company who provided the drone, agreed upon a settlement, the details of what has not been divulged. No liability has been admitted by either the Pi Kappa Phi Delta Rho Chapter or Perfect Event Inc.

Common Types of Premises Liability Accident in Riverside, California

As mentioned earlier, premises liability claims can arise from all manner of scenarios, with the list ever-evolving as new technology and equipment become widely available. Sometimes, a lawsuit can arise from a simple error like failing to change a burnt-out lightbulb in a dark area, and, at others, it can be due to an avoidable drowning when there was no lifeguard on duty.

While the specifics of each Riverside premises liability suit our attorneys have successfully handled are very different in each individual case, they all broadly fall into the following categories:

  • Tripping hazards
  • Accidental drowning
  • Slip and fall
  • Exposed wires
  • Wet or recently waxed floors
  • School injuries
  • Hotel accidents
  • Shopping center accidents
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Negligent security
  • Construction site injuries
