What are premises liability claims?

In California, property owners have a duty of care to visitors and invitees. This duty includes keeping their property in a safe condition. Property owners and those responsible for the property must take care to maintain their property, warn invitees of hazards, and make repairs as soon as possible.

Property owners are not the only ones who can be sued in a premises liability claim. You can also sue:

  • Homeowners
  • Renters
  • Tenants
  • Restaurants
  • Employees
  • Parent companies
  • Property management companies

If whoever is responsible for the property fails in their duty of care and someone visiting the property is injured, then they can be held liable for the cost of medical care and related expenses.

Some common examples of premises liability claims include:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Animal bites
  • Accidents in private residences

Determining a Negligent Property Owner

When you file a premises liability claim, you must be able to prove that the property owner (defendant) had a duty of care to you. That means you were lawfully on the property and were behaving appropriately; therefore, the property owner owed you a duty of care.

Next, you must prove that the property owner breached that duty of care. For example, a property owner knew that a step was broken, or should have known, but did not warn you or post a sign. You walk on the step, and it falls in, causing you to break your ankle.  

Compensation for Premises Liability Injuries

When you file a premises liability claim, you seek compensation for the damages you suffered or continue to suffer due to the accident. Damages may include the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost income
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Future medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability
  • Scarring or disfigurement
