Have you been injured due to the negligence of a business or property owner?
Premises liability refers to a landowner’s liability for injuries caused by property defects, hazardous conditions, inadequate security and/or unsafe premises.
Both businesses and property owners have a duty to provide a safe environment for visitors. When an individual is injured on the property, the landowner or the business may be held legally responsible for the visitors injuries, including the medical expenses, lost wages, and pain & suffering. Premises liability can become very complex when it comes to issues of reasonability and culpability. Because of these issues, it’s important to seek the legal advice of a skilled premises lawyer in San Diego to determine the strength of your claim and give you the best chance at a successful case.
Premises liability can vary from one state to another; however, a common factor that doesn’t change is what you as the plaintiff need to prove in order to hold the landowner or business liable for your damages.
Here is a basic list:
–> You will need to prove the premises’ condition posed some sort of reasonable risk of harm.
–> Need to prove that the landlord or business owner was aware, or reasonably should have been aware of the danger posed in the situation
–> Need to prove the negligence directly caused your injury, which can be as simple as “failure to act”
If you are unsure what all this means, don’t worry, your attorney will walk you through all the issues from the initial meeting.
Common examples of premises liability accidents include:
–> Slip and fall accidents due to spilled liquid when the facility should have reasonably discovered it by the point of the accident
–> Injuries due to electrocutions from cable wires that have been left unattended
–> Getting hit by objections at a construction site
–> Drowning in a swimming pool if it was lacking safety items
–> Being attacked by an owner’s dog
–> Exposure to toxins such as irritants or fumes
