California property owners have a legal responsibility to keep their property safe and free of hazards that could potentially cause a serious personal injury. Otherwise, the property owner could be held legally responsible for any injuries that occur on his or her property. Such cases fall under an area of the law known as premises liability.

What is a premises liability accident?

This area of the law grants people certain rights if they are injured on another person’s property. Those rights are especially strong in California, where the state Supreme Court ruled in 1968 that people injured on someone else’s property have the right to seek legal compensation, regardless of whether the injured person had a legal right to be on the property.

What are common premises liability accidents?

While not a complete list, some of the most common premises liability accidents include:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Shopping mall accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Parking lot accidents
  • Hotel accidents
  • Restaurant accidents

Do property owners have a legal responsibility to provide security?

Yes. People can reasonably expect public property like a parking lot, public swimming pool or hotel lobby to be safe places with adequate lighting and other security measures. If you or a loved one was attacked on public property and you believe there wasn’t adequate security, you could have grounds for a premises liability case in the jurisdiction where the incident took place.

What if the property owner denies wrongdoing after an accident?

It’s common for property owners to deny wrongdoing. Even if they have insurance to cover your losses, they may argue you were not careful. This is one of the reasons why you should contact The Law Offices of Brian Brandt as soon as possible after your accident. Brian has years of experience fighting to protect clients’ rights. He knows how to determine liability and make sure the responsible entity is held accountable.

Can I file a premises liability lawsuit in California?

Yes. While most cases are resolved through settlements between an attorney and insurance company, sometimes it’s necessary to file a premises liability lawsuit. Our experience shows us that often the threat of a lawsuit is enough to push the defendant to settle the case. But if litigation is necessary, Brian is ready to go to court and present evidence on your behalf.
