Understanding Premises Liability Law in California
To have a valid premises liability claim, you must be able to prove that the property owner failed in his or her duty to maintain grounds that are reasonably safe from hazards. You must show that the hazard existed, it caused your injuries, and the property owner knew of or should have reasonably known of the hazard – and yet did not repair it or warn visitors of its presence.
Examples of hazards may include:
- Wet floors
- Inadequate lighting
- Insufficient security measures
- Negligent security personnel
- Objects in walkways
- Defective stairways, escalators, or elevators
- Missing railings
- Defective flooring or carpeting
