California Personal Injury Law Firm
Premises liability refers to the concept that those individuals who own or occupy a property are responsible for maintaining a reasonably safe environment for guests, patrons, service personnel, and anyone visiting the premises, other than trespassers. If a visitor to the premises is injured through negligence on the part of the property owner or occupier, he or she may be entitled to recover damages from the property owner or occupier through a personal injury claim or lawsuit. This applies to both public and private property, such as residences, businesses, offices, entertainment venues, hotels, shopping malls, sports arenas, and more, whether inside or outside on pathways, sidewalks, driveways, parking areas, and more.

Liability of Property Owners and Occupiers
If an unsafe condition exists on a property, such as a wet, slippery floor, broken floor tiles, poor or inadequate lighting in hallways, stairwells, or pathways, potholes, or other hazards, the property owner or occupier should take remedial action or post signs warning visitors until the hazard has been repaired. Furthermore, premises liability may extend to criminal attacks on visitors while visiting the premises when there is negligent security. It is important to discuss your case with a California premises liability lawyer at the firm to get specific legal guidance on the causes and nature of your injuries while visiting another's premises.
