Premises Liability Claims in California

When you work with Tim D. Wright, we will carefully examine the facts of your case. We will identify and pursue all of your legal options against the owner or occupier of the property where your injury occurred. Generally, the matters that we will focus on include:

  • Duty-- Did you legally visit the property? For example, were you a customer at a store, a visitor at a hotel or a social guest at someone's residence? If so, the property owner or occupant owed a duty to exercise ordinary care to make sure that the property was safe for you. In other words, the owner or occupant needed to take reasonable steps to protect you from any hazardous condition on the property that the owner or occupant knew or reasonably should have known about and which you would not have been expected to discover on your own.
  • Breach-- Did the owner or occupant neglect to repair the hazardous condition in a reasonable, timely manner or, at least, to warn you about it? If so, the owner failed to fulfill the duty owed to you and could be held legally responsible for your injuries.
  • Causation-- Did the carelessness of the owner or occupier contribute to the injuries that you suffered, or did something else-- possibly your own actions-- cause the injuries?
  • Damages-- Did you suffer actual harm as a result of the failure of the property owner or occupier to fulfill the duty owed to you? This means that you need to show that you suffered genuine physical, emotional and/or financial harm.

It is always important to consider the ways a property owner or occupier will try to avoid liability. For example, the owner or occupant might claim that you were a trespasser or argue that you suffered injuries because you walked into an "open and obvious" hazard. The lawyers at Tim D. Wright, will be prepared to take on those issues and protect your right to full and fair compensation.

Types of Premises Liability Claims in California

A premises liability claim can arise in various situations. A few of the most common premises liability cases that our law firm handles include:

  • Slip and falls-- These accidents often happen because of wet and slippery floors, bad lighting, damaged and uneven walkways, torn or frayed carpeting and icy or snowy walkways and parking lots. Additionally, a lot of falls occur because of defects such as broken stairs or handrails.
  • Falling objects-- Many people suffer injuries when poorly stacked merchandise falls from store shelves or when workers drop tools, equipment and materials at construction sites.
  • Contamination-- Landlords, particularly, subject occupants and their guests to harm when they fail to conduct regular inspections and remedy issues such as mold buildup, lead paint, carbon monoxide or gas leaks. Usually, their neglect violates local building codes.
  • Escalator and elevator accidents-- These accidents often happen when building owners or tenants neglect to routinely inspect and maintain elevators and escalators in stores, shopping centers and office buildings.
  • Negligent security-- Many assaults occur in shopping centers, office buildings, apartments, hotels and motels because property owners and managers fail to protect visitors from known security risks, or they hire employees without a sufficient criminal background check.
  • Swimming pool accidents-- Drownings and near-drownings might occur if a property owner or occupant fails to properly maintain a pool and features such as slides and diving boards. Swimming pool owners should also use a fence or locked gate to keep out children and protect against the foreseeable risk of an accident.
