If you’ve been a victim of a crime on someone’s property, a dog bite, or a slip and fall; you may be eligible for a premises liability lawsuit. This area of personal injury law involves situations where you go somewhere, such as a property where someone else, such as the owner, is responsible for your safety and they act recklessly/negligently which results in you suffering injuries. A premises liability attorney in California has the experience needed in order to represent their clients the way they deserve.
What Are Some Common Situations that May Lead to Premises Liability Cases?
Some examples of potential lawsuits include:
- Slip and fall injuries
- Defective conditions at a premise
- Dog bites
- Swimming pool accidents
- Inadequate maintenance of premises
- Playground injuries
- Escalator/elevator injuries
The owner has a duty to protect people on their property. Any failure to live up to that duty can lead to their negligence and a lawsuit in California. If a party has the right to control property then they must exercise control in a reasonable manner to prevent any foreseeable injuries to individuals. An owner of a property must also use reasonable care to discover unsafe conditions and/or to inspect property full.
Owning or occupying a property doesn’t automatically make someone liable for injuries on that said property. Negligence is defined by the person failed to use reasonable care to keep the property safe. However, it is up to a jury to decide whether someone acted reasonably. Because there are many types of situations regarding premises liability, it’s important to hire an experienced California premises liability attorney.
