The Basics of Premises Liability Law Explained by Experts

Premises liability is a legal concept that holds property owners responsible for maintaining safe conditions on their premises to prevent injuries to visitors. This means that the owners have a duty to keep their property free from hazards and dangers that could harm others. 

For example, if the owner fails to fix a broken staircase railing and a visitor falls and gets injured, they may be liable for the visitor’s injuries. Similarly, if a store owner fails to clean up a spill on the floor and a customer slips and falls, the store owner may be held accountable for the customer’s injuries. 

Premises liability law aims to ensure that owners take reasonable precautions to protect the safety of those who enter their premises. 

Common Premises Liability Accidents in SB

Here are the common types of accidents that could result in premises liability cases in San Bernardino: 

  1. Slips, trips, and falls: These accidents often occur due to wet or uneven surfaces, such as slippery floors or cracked sidewalks. Lack of warning signs or inadequate maintenance can contribute to these incidents, resulting in injuries ranging from minor bruises to severe fractures.
  2. Elevator and escalator accidents: Mechanical failures, such as sudden stops or malfunctions, can lead to accidents in elevators and escalators. Poor maintenance practices or defective components increase the risk of incidents, potentially causing injuries like trapped limbs or falls.
  3. Swimming pool accidents: Inadequate safety measures, such as poorly maintained pool decks or lack of supervision, can lead to accidents in swimming pools. Slippery surfaces, diving into shallow water, or entrapment by faulty pool drains are common causes of injuries or drowning incidents.
  4. Inadequate security: Insufficient security measures on-premises can leave visitors vulnerable to criminal activities, including assaults or robberies. Lack of proper lighting, broken security cameras, or negligent security personnel contribute to the risk of such incidents, causing physical harm and emotional distress to victims.

Typical Injuries in Premises Cases

Premises liability incidents can result in a wide range of injuries, varying in severity and long-term consequences:

  1. Fractures: Slip and fall accidents or other hazards on poorly maintained premises can lead to fractures in bones, such as wrists, arms, ankles, or hips. These fractures often require medical intervention, including casting or surgical procedures, and can result in temporary or permanent impairment.
  2. Head Injuries: Falls or impacts to the head can cause traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), ranging from concussions to severe brain trauma. Head injuries may result in cognitive impairment, memory loss, mood changes, or long-term neurological deficits, affecting the victim’s quality of life and ability to work.
  3. Spinal Injuries: Accidents involving falls or sudden impacts can cause spinal cord injuries, leading to partial or complete paralysis, chronic pain, or loss of motor function. Spinal injuries often necessitate extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and adaptive equipment, significantly impacting the victim’s independence and mobility.
  4. Lacerations: Sharp objects or hazardous conditions on-premises can cause cuts, gashes, or puncture wounds, resulting in significant bleeding, tissue damage, or risk of infection. Depending on the severity and location of lacerations, victims may require stitches, wound care, or even reconstructive surgery to achieve optimal recovery.

These injuries can impose physical, emotional, and financial burdens on victims and their families, requiring comprehensive legal assistance to pursue compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

A skilled premises liability law firm in San Bernardino can advocate for the rights of injured individuals, ensuring they receive the support and resources needed to rebuild their lives after such traumatic events.


Who is Responsible for Your Injuries?

A case hinges on pinpointing whether owners, landlords, or occupiers bear the responsibility for harm encountered by guests or visitors. Below are the following parties who could be liable: 

  • Property owners or occupiers
  • Landlords
  • Property management companies
  • Business owners operating on the premises
  • Contractors responsible for maintenance or repairs
  • Government entities for public properties

Several factors contribute to determining liability in these cases, including:

  1. Duty of Care: Owners have a legal obligation to maintain safe conditions on their premises and warn visitors of any known hazards. This duty of care extends to individuals who are lawfully present on the property, regardless of whether they are customers, guests, or members of the public.
  2. Visitor’s Status: The visitor’s legal status at the time of the incident influences the level of duty owed by the owner. Three primary categories of visitors will be explained more below. 
  3. Negligence by the Owner: To establish liability, the injured party must demonstrate that the owner breached their duty of care through negligence. This may involve proving that the owner knew or should have known about the hazardous condition but failed to take reasonable steps to address it.
  4. Causation: Finally, the injured party must establish a direct link between the property owner’s negligence and the injuries sustained. This requires demonstrating that the hazardous condition directly caused or significantly contributed to the accident and resulting harm.

The Role of Visitor Types in Determining Liability

In premises liability cases, the visitor’s status is crucial in determining liability. Here’s a brief overview:

  1. Invitees: Invitees are individuals invited onto the property for business purposes or mutual benefit. Property owners owe the highest duty of care to invitees, including regular inspections to identify and address hazards. For example, a customer shopping at a retail store is considered an invitee.
  2. Licensees: Licensees have permission to enter the property but do so for their own purposes rather than for the property owner’s benefit. Property owners must warn licensees of known hazards but are not required to actively inspect the property. An example of a licensee is a social guest invited to a friend’s house.
  3. Trespassers: Trespassers enter the property without permission. Property owners typically owe no duty of care to trespassers except to refrain from willfully causing harm. However, there are exceptions, such as known trespassing routes or attractive nuisances like swimming pools.

What Compensation Can You Expect?

The following are the various types of compensation that can be awarded to accident victims. 

  • Medical Expenses: Compensation for past and future medical bills related to the injury, including hospitalization, surgery, medication, therapy, and rehabilitation.
  • Lost Wages due to the injury, including missed workdays, reduced earning capacity, and potential future earnings.
  • Pain and Suffering: Such as anxiety, depression, and loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Property Damage: Including clothing, electronic devices, or vehicles, caused by the incident.
  • Loss of Consortium: Compensation for the injury’s negative impact on the victim’s relationship with their spouse or family members.

In some rare cases, punitive damages can be awarded. This additional compensation will be given to the victim of the defendant’s extreme negligence or intentional misconduct. These damages are intended to punish the responsible party and deter similar behavior in the future.

Why You Need a San Bernardino Premises Liability Attorney

Hiring a lawyer for your claim will be beneficial in many ways:

  1. Expert Guidance: An attorney provides expert guidance throughout the legal process, helping you understand your rights and options.
  2. Peace of Mind: By handling all legal matters, your lawyer alleviates the stress and burden of pursuing a claim, allowing you to focus on recovery.
  3. Maximized Compensation: Experienced representation knows how to assess the full extent of your damages and negotiate with insurance companies for maximum compensation.
  4. Local Experience: A local attorney familiar with San Berdoo’s legal landscape understands local court procedures, judges, and building codes, enhancing your chances of success.

If you’ve suffered an amputation due to an accident or negligence, timing is critical when pursuing compensation. You have a two-year window from the date of your injury to file a claim.

This timeframe is vital for assessing the extent of your injury, collecting essential evidence, and maximizing your chance for compensation within legal deadlines. Acting promptly and thoughtfully is essential in securing the justice you deserve.

What to Do if You Get Injured On Someone Else's Property

No matter the type of premises liability accident, you should do the following: 

  1. Assess Your Safety: Move to a secure location if necessary and assess the severity of your injuries.
  2. Document the Scene: Take photos or videos of the accident scene, including any hazardous conditions or contributing factors such as spills, uneven surfaces, or broken stairs. Note the date, time, and location of the incident.
  3. Seek Medical Attention: Some injuries may not manifest symptoms immediately, and a medical evaluation can document the extent of your injuries, providing crucial evidence for your claim.
  4. Report the Incident: Report the accident to the property owner, manager, or supervisor as soon as possible. Request that they document the incident in their records and provide you with a copy for your records.
  5. Gather Witness Information: If there were any witnesses to the accident, obtain their names and contact information. Witness testimony can corroborate your version of events and strengthen your claim.
  6. Preserve Evidence, such as torn clothing, damaged personal belongings, or medical reports. Keep a record of all medical treatment received and expenses incurred due to the injury.
  7. Avoid Discussing Fault with the owner, their insurance company, or anyone else involved. Anything you say could be used against you in the future.
  8. Contact a Premises Liability Attorney: Finally, consider contacting an attorney who specializes in handling cases like yours. An experienced attorney can provide valuable guidance, protect your rights, and help you navigate the legal process to seek fair compensation for your injuries.

Deadline for Filing Premises Liability Claims in California

The statute of limitations for premises liability claims is generally two years from the date of the injury. It’s essential to note that there can be exceptions to this timeframe depending on the circumstances of the case. However, in most situations, injured parties only have the two years.

It’s best for individuals injured on someone’s property to seek legal advice promptly to ensure their rights are protected and don’t miss the opportunity to pursue compensation. Waiting too long to take action could result in losing the ability to file a claim. 

Legal Fees to Expect

We solely operate on a contingency fee for premises liability claims. This means you won’t pay any upfront costs for legal representation. Instead, our fees are contingent upon the case’s successful resolution.

If we secure your compensation, our fee will be a predetermined settlement or court award percentage. You don’t owe us any attorney fees if we don’t win your case. This approach allows you to pursue your premises liability claim without financial risk, ensuring that you only pay if we achieve a favorable outcome for you.
