Premises liability refers to the duty of property owners to provide reasonably safe conditions for individuals who are legally on their premises, such as visitors, workers and residents. Under California’s premises liability law, property owners can be held legally responsible for any accidents that occur on their premises.
Although not all accidents result in valid premises liability claims, anyone who has suffered an injury on another individual’s property should consult with an experienced California premises liability lawyer to determine if they are entitled to financial compensation. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Samer Habbas can provide you with a complimentary consultation to determine whether you have a premises liability claim.
Proving a Premises Liability Claim
There are two key elements in establishing liability for a premises liability claim: 1) the presence of a dangerous condition and 2) whether the property owner had knowledge of the dangerous condition. In order to establish the first element of a premises liability claim, you and your attorney need to provide sufficient evidence of the dangerous condition. This can be done through photographs, reliable testimony, and other types of evidence.
Proving that a property owner had knowledge of a dangerous condition can be more challenging. In general, property owners cannot be legally responsible if they were not aware of the dangerous condition. As such, it is important to have an experienced California premises liability attorney who understands the subtleties required to legally prove that the owner was indeed aware of the dangerous condition.
Examples of Dangerous Premises
Although slip and fall cases are some of the more common claims arising from premises liability, other incidents can form the basis of a property liability claim. Some common examples of dangerous premises that can result in a valid premises liability claim include:
- Broken stairs
- Spilled liquids on floors
- Broken glass or other debris on floors
- Falling debris
- Ripped carpeting
- Slippery floors
Regardless of what dangerous condition led to you being injured on another party’s premises, you should consult with an experienced California premises liability claim to protect your legal rights.
