Premises liability cases involve accidents that occur due to the negligent maintenance or unsafe and dangerous conditions upon the property owned by someone other than the accident victim. Property owners and business establishments have a duty to provide a safe environment for individuals on their premises. According to California law, when a person is injured on another person’s property, the property owner may be held liable.
Commonly referred to as “slip and fall accidents,” typical situations giving rise to premises liability cases in California include uneven or slippery floor surfaces, poorly marked changes in elevation, broken steps, parking lot mishaps. Liability claims may also be filed for injuries resulting from equipment used on the property.
