Premise Liability Lawyers
Under California law, anyone who owns property has a legal obligation to keep it safe from hazards. If property owners fail to properly maintain their property and someone incurs injury as a result, they may be liable for damages under premise liability law. In San Diego, people sustain injuries each year by dangers that owners’ care could have prevented. While many accidents are minor, some result in serious and even catastrophic injuries. If you or a loved one are struggling with medical bills, lost wages, or other damages associated with an accident incurred on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
What’s Premise Liability?
The term “premise liability” refers to the idea that anyone who allows others on their property has a duty to use “reasonable care” in its upkeep. In other words, entities like businesses, public parks, and government building must maintain their properties to prevent foreseeable injury. Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common types of premise liability accidents, so much that it’s sometimes called “slip and fall liability. However, premise liability law encompasses all kinds of scenarios, including:
• Pool Accidents
• Elevator and Escalator Accidents
• Campus Injuries
• Matters of Negligent Security
• Slip and Fall Accidents
• Serious Dog Bite Injuries
• Amusement Park Injuries
