Premise Liability in Los Angeles

A property owner has a legal obligation to make a “reasonable effort to maintain a safe environment for visitors…” But when you visited a property and were seriously injured, through no fault of your own, you have legal rights to monetary compensation. In California and all U.S. states, property owners must not allow dangerous conditions that can injure innocent and unsuspecting people.

What constitutes a dangerous property condition? When a property has the potential to create a substantial risk of injury when visitors can expect to use it in a reasonable manner, it is considered dangerous. Even if an adult can avoid injuries on an owner’s property, when children can’t appreciate or avoid danger because of their immaturity such as in unsecured pools, premises liability applies.

If you were injured in any of the following ways because of an owner’s intentional or unintentional property conditions, you may be entitled to substantial monetary compensation under California’s premises liability law.

Premises Liability Injuries Including Private Homes, Retail Stores, Restaurants and Private Parking Lots

Examples of premises liability include:

Slip, trip and fall from wet, uneven surfaces, or material on aisles, halls, or paths.

Dog bites whether a canine had a previous history of viciousness or not, if a dog bites or attacks a visitor, the owner is responsible.

Swimming pool drownings even those that don’t cause death can lead to serious, life-altering brain injuries.

Negligent or inadequate security especially in high crime business districts can heighten instance of assaults, robberies, rape and homicide.

Inadequate maintenance leaving exposed wires, unstable stairways, unsecure locks, falling roofs, faulty structures and more can lead to injuries.

Burns and scalding injuries for guests of restaurants may be considered a premises liability.

Experience & Results

Invited Guests, Customers and Visitors Licensed to Be On A Property Expect to Be Reasonably Safe

All property owners and lessors are required by law to provide a high level of care to those who lawfully visit their property. An owner that allows dangerous conditions and/or failure to warn visitors, can be held liable for injuries caused. Of course, trespassers, who have no right to be on a property, may not sue an owner or lessor for injuries they incur. The exception is when an owner or occupant may not intentionally attempt to injure trespassers such as by setting traps.

The owner of a pool—by legal definition pools are termed an “attractive nuisance”—has a higher duty of care and must be sensitive to potential dangers to children, even child trespassers. Pool owners must install protective fencing, locked gates, and warning signs to alert adults to danger. If a pool owner created or maintained a condition that is hazardous for children, they can be held monetarily responsible for any injuries or fatalities a child incurs.

If you were injured on a leased property such as an apartment complex or other commercial structure, if the tenant is presumed to be in control of the property condition, they can be held liable for injuries. On the other hand, if the lessor acquired the property with unknown existing defects and dangerous conditions, the owner can be held responsible for guest injuries.
