Premises Liability in the State of California
California premises liability cases, often referred to as slip and fall accidents, are very complex and often difficult to prove. A thorough understanding of the ever-changing and fact-specific laws regarding the various and numerous incidents that result in premises liability is essential to successful legal representation.
In California, merely owning or occupying land does not make that person liable for injuries sustained on the property. There must be some form of negligence on the part of the owner or occupier of property before there can be any premises liability. In order to understand the duty owed by an owner or occupier of land, it is necessary to understand the difference between the owner of the property and the occupier of the property and their relative liability
Likewise, it is necessary to understand the three different types of people who may be on the property because the degree of responsibility owed by an owner or occupier varies according to the status of the person who is injured. These types are invitees, licensees, and trespassers.
Steps to Take if You've Been Injured
You'll obviously need representation if you want financial compensation. The owner of the property is overall responsible, but also managers or any other on-site employees are also responsible for keeping up a reasonable standard of safety.
Securing relevant evidence can be crucial to your case. Items such as witness statements, photographs, and physical samples can mean the difference between a good and bad premises liability case in California.
