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.
