Premises Liability


 Individuals have premises liability claims when they have been injured due to an unsafe condition on the property of another.  Premises liability claims can be filed for a variety of reasons, including trip and fall accidents, slip and fall accidents, swimming pool accidents, defective stairs, faulty balconies, roof cave-ins, missing or faulty railings, dog bites. . . and the list goes on.  Premises liability claims can occur at homes, apartments, commercial buildings, warehouses, shopping centers, stores, parks, vacant lots and amusement parks.


Premises liability is a term used to describe the legal responsibility that landowners and occupiers of property have for injuries and accidents that occur on their property.  In addition, claims may be filed for injuries that are caused by equipment that is used on the property.  Also, injuries that may be a result of another person's actions on the property may be the responsibility of a property owner, especially if the owner fails to provide adequate security on the property.


Under California law, it is the responsibility of the owner of a property to maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition. The failure to do so, may entitle a person who is injured as the result of the owner’s negligence to compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. Every year, Northern California is the site of numerous accidents caused by the negligence of property managers and owners.


Known unsafe conditions that cause accidents on premises that are not either fixed in a timely manner or brought to the attention of customers are potential premises liability cases.  For example, victims who have been injured on premises have recovered compensation in the following circumstances:


      •Hotel swimming pool injuries, including drowning

      •Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents

      •Sexual offenses by security officers or business personnel

      •Insufficient security lighting and cameras in parking garages and ramps

      •Injuries suffered in assaults by patrons of theme parks or bars

      •Dog bite attacks

      •Sexual offenses as a result of lack of security or lighting

      •Violence as a result of lack of security or lighting

      •Robbery as a result of lack of security or lighting

      •Negligent security

      •Falling merchandise

      •Injury resulting in the negligent hiring, supervision or maintaining of business, hotel or theme park employees.


Businesses and property owners have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for their customers and other people on their premises. An innocent third party should not be subjected to known, unsafe conditions. The negligence of a property owner or business can result in customers being robbed, raped, suffering personal injuries, or even wrongful death.
