Property Owners Are Responsible For Your Safety
“Premises liability” refers to a property owner’s legal duty for the safety of individuals who visit buildings or property he or she owns. Property owners have a legal duty to ensure their property is safe for visitors.
When hazards present themselves, property owners are required to fix them in a timely manner, or if a fix cannot be immediately addressed, they are required to warn visitors of the danger. The warning must be one that a reasonable person would recognize and understand. Property owners who breach their duty of care owed to the general public may be required to compensate those who are injured due to their negligence.
A Thorough Investigation To Establish Fault
Our experienced premises liability lawyers can launch an accident investigation to build a strong case for the recovery of all damages that you are entitled to receive under the law.
Often times, we will retain an expert witness, usually an engineer, to examine the accident scene while the evidence is still fresh. When it comes to proving a case for premises liability, either against a private or public entity, or a private person, time is of the essence.
Schedule A Free Consultation
We recommend contacting us as soon as possible after your accident. Prompt actions allow for a thorough investigation while the evidence is still fresh. California has a two-year statute of limitations to file personal injury claims. If you file past this deadline, you may not be able to recover the compensation that you deserve.
