Understanding Premises Liability

Premises liability refers to the legal responsibility of property owners or occupiers to ensure the safety of individuals who enter their premises. This responsibility encompasses maintaining a safe environment and taking reasonable measures to prevent accidents or injuries to visitors.

Property owners are expected to promptly identify and address hazardous conditions on their premises, such as slippery floors, uneven walkways, inadequate lighting, or defective equipment.

In addition, they may be held liable for injuries sustained on their premises if they fail to fulfill their duty of care to visitors. Under premises liability law, property owners owe different levels of duty of care to different types of visitors. For example, they owe:

  • A higher duty of care to invitees, such as customers or guests.
  • A lower duty of care to licensees, who are individuals allowed on the property for social reasons.
  • The least duty of care to trespassers who enter the property without permission.

Examples of Negligence That Could Lead to a Premises Liability Claim

Cases often stem from incidents where individuals are injured on someone else’s property due to hazardous conditions:
  • Slips and Falls: Happens when an individual slips, trips, or falls because of dangerous conditions on a property. Negligence might be seen in the failure to promptly clean up spills, lack of adequate warning signs for wet floors, or failure to repair uneven surfaces.
  • Inadequate Maintenance: Failing to maintain a property adequately can lead to unsafe situations. Examples include broken handrails, malfunctioning elevators or escalators, and neglected repairs like damaged flooring.
  • Dog Bites: When a dog bites or attacks someone on its owner’s property due to negligence—such as allowing an aggressive dog free reign without proper restraints—a claim may arise against the owner for injuries sustained.
  • Swimming Pool Accidents: Incidents around swimming pools—including drownings and slip-and-fall accidents—are especially concerning. Lack of fencing or gates around pool areas, inadequate supervision of guests (particularly children), and poor maintenance practices could all point towards negligence by the pool owner.
Recognizing these scenarios is crucial for anyone who has suffered injuries under similar circumstances—it may indicate that you have grounds for pursuing compensation through a legal claim against the responsible party.

California State Laws on Premises Liability

In California, premises liability is governed by Civil Code 1714, which establishes liability for injuries resulting from another’s negligence.

Property owners are obligated to maintain their premises in a safe condition, ensuring they are free from hazardous conditions through routine inspections. This duty extends to repairing, replacing, or providing adequate warnings about dangerous conditions to protect visitors.

Negligence may be deemed present if they fail to address hazardous conditions on their property that they knew or should have known about. For example, an apartment complex owner must repair uneven stairs or post warning signs to prevent injuries to residents or guests.

The owner’s responsibility depends on the risk and potential harm associated with the condition. And so, negligence may be established if:

  1. An unreasonable risk of harm exists due to a condition on the property.
  2. The owner knew or should have known about the condition with reasonable care.
  3. The owner failed to remedy, prevent, or warn about the condition.

For instance, if a retail store has wet and slippery floors that pose a foreseeable risk of slipping and falling for customers, the store owner is obligated to identify the hazard, warn customers with signage, and promptly clean the floor to remove the spill.


Who Can You Sue in a Premises Liability Case?

Identifying the liable parties involves assessing various factors, including property ownership, the victim’s legal status on the premises, and contractual agreements. Here’s a detailed breakdown:

  • Property Owners are generally responsible for maintaining safe conditions and warning visitors of hazards on their premises. This applies to individuals, corporations, or government entities owning the property.
  • Tenants or Occupants: If the property is leased or occupied, tenants may share liability depending on lease agreements and the control level over the property’s maintenance.
  • Property Managers: Those responsible for property management or maintenance can be liable for negligence if they fail to address hazardous conditions promptly.
  • Contractors: If injuries result from construction or repair work, contractors or subcontractors involved in the project may be liable for negligence.
  • Government Entities: In cases involving public property, such as parks or government buildings, government entities may bear responsibility. However, suing government entities may involve special procedures due to governmental immunity laws.

Determining the liable parties requires careful evaluation of the circumstances and applicable legal principles. Consulting with a knowledgeable Torrance personal injury attorney can help navigate the complexities and pursue compensation for injuries and damages.

What Damages Can You Recover?

Victims can pursue various types of damages to compensate for their losses:

  1. Punitive: In certain cases involving egregious negligence or intentional misconduct, punitive damages are intended to punish the defendant and deter similar misconduct in the future. However, punitive damages are rare in premises liability cases and typically require evidence of willful or reckless behavior on the part of the property owner or responsible party.
  2. Non-Economic: Cover intangible losses that are more challenging to quantify but equally significant. This category may include compensation for pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and psychological trauma resulting from the injury.
  3. Economic: Aim to compensate victims for measurable financial losses incurred as a result of the injury, such as medical expenses for treatment, rehabilitation costs, and any future medical care required. Additionally, victims can seek compensation for lost wages or income if the injury prevents them from working.

In California, punitive damages are subject to specific legal requirements and limitations. They are typically awarded only when the defendant’s conduct is deemed especially reprehensible or egregious. To pursue punitive damages, plaintiffs must demonstrate clear and convincing evidence of malice, oppression, or fraud.

Consulting with a premises liability law firm in Torrance can help victims understand their legal options in these instances.

What to Do After an Incident

Encountering an injury on someone else’s property can be unsettling, but swift action is crucial for your well-being and legal recourse.

  1. Seek immediate medical attention from a healthcare professional to thoroughly address and document your injuries.
  2. Carefully document all pertinent details of the incident, including the location, date, time, and circumstances surrounding the accident. If possible, photograph the hazardous condition or area where the incident occurred.
  3. Inform the property owner, manager, or supervisor about the accident and request that they create an official incident report. Be sure to obtain a copy for your records.
  4. Refrain from making statements or signing documents without consulting with us first. They can provide invaluable guidance to protect your rights and interests.
  5. Contact a premises liability lawyer experienced in handling such cases to discuss your situation and explore your legal options. They can assess the viability of your claim, gather evidence, and advocate on your behalf.
  6. Follow all medical recommendations and attend all appointments for proper documentation of your injuries and treatment.

Taking these proactive steps promptly after a premises liability incident is crucial for safeguarding your rights and enhancing your chances of obtaining fair compensation for your injuries and related losses.

Key Elements to Prove in Your Premises Liability Claim

In a premises liability claim, several key elements must be established to prove negligence and hold the property owner accountable for injuries sustained on their premises:

  1. Duty of Care: Involves maintaining the property safely and addressing any hazards that may pose a risk to visitors.
  2. Breach of Duty: By failing to address a hazardous condition or adequately warn visitors about it. This could involve proving that the owner knew or should have known about the hazard but failed to take reasonable steps to remedy it.
  3. Causation: Demonstrating that the hazardous condition directly contributed to the accident and resulting harm.
  4. Damages: This may include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses incurred due to the injuries sustained on the property.

Statute of Limitations

In California, if you’re an accident victim planning to pursue a case for financial recovery, it’s crucial to act swiftly. The law mandates a two-year statute of limitations from the date of the incident. This means you have exactly two years to file your claim; securing compensation becomes significantly more challenging beyond this period.

 Fees You Can Expect to Pay

Like many other personal injury lawyers, we operate on a contingency fee basis, alleviating upfront financial concerns. Under this arrangement, our payment depends on us winning your case for you and receiving a predetermined percentage of the settlement or court award.

If your case doesn’t result in compensation, you owe no fees, aligning your attorney’s interests with yours. Discussing this agreement ensures clear expectations regarding costs upon successful case resolution.
