Inverse Condemnation: Process And Examples
Peterson Law Group Focuses The Law Practice On Eminent Domain And Inverse Condemnation
When deciding to engage a property damage litigation lawyer for your matter, it is important to evaluate the settlement experience and trial results of the attorney. One may wish to inquire about the property damage litigation lawyer’s settlement and trial experience with inverse condemnation.
Inverse Condemnation Trials Are Frequently Two-Phase Trials:
- A judge generally decides legal issues such as liability
- A jury decides valuation and determines damages.
Our California property damage litigation lawyers have represented and tried to verdict cases such as these examples:
- $3.0 million decision for a landslide caused by a coastal fire road in an inverse condemnation case for the cost of repairing a client’s Palos Verdes Estates bluff-top ocean view property;
- $10.5 million verdict on auto dealership property adjacent to the 405 Freeway;
- $4.0 million verdict for vacant land across from the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.
Settlements Avoiding Trial
Our property damage litigation lawyers have also resolved substantial inverse condemnation claims while avoiding trial. These have involved landslide, land subsidence, other earth movement and access cases, including a major public works project on Wilshire Boulevard and Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles that resulted in several million dollars in aggregate inverse condemnation resolutions from property damage claims.
Our California property damage litigation lawyers have represented and resolved landslide cases involving properties in several areas throughout Southern California, including Laurel Canyon, San Bernardino, Yorba Linda, Agoura Hills, and Baldwin Hills.
