Were You Injured By An Unsafe Property Condition In California?
Everyone slips, trips or falls now and again. But if you were seriously injured because of a safety hazard on another person’s property, that’s a different story. Property owners have a legal duty to ensure that their premises are safe. If someone is injured due to unsafe condition, they can be held accountable for a person’s injuries.
Understanding Premise Liability Claims
You may have a premises liability claim when you are injured on someone else’s property, whether it is a business, an apartment building, a home or even public spaces maintained by a governmental body.
Examples of premises liability claims include:
- Slip-and-falls or trip-and-falls
- Elevator accidents
- Construction site injuries
- Swimming pool injuries
- Home accidents (in someone else’s home)
- Dog bites and attacks
The common thread is a hidden hazard or dangerous condition. Property owners are responsible for injuries resulting from slippery floors, tripping hazards, broken stairs or handrails, falling merchandise, missing warning signs and other safety threats.
In a premises liability case, you must prove that the owner either knew or should have known of the danger but failed take timely action to protect visitors. I can help.
