Premises Liability Laws in California
In California, all property owners have a legal duty to make sure the premises are safe for guests and patrons. If a person is injured due to a property owner or property manager's negligence, he or she may be able to seek compensatory damages.
Property owner negligence is established by demonstrating the following elements:
- Duty: The injured party must prove that the defendant owned or leased the property and thus owed a duty of care to patrons of the premises.
- Breach of duty: Did the defendant breach the duty of care owed to you? Did they fail to fix a dangerous condition on the property in a reasonable amount of time? Did they fail to warn patrons of a known defect or danger?
- Causation: Were your injuries directly caused by the hazardous condition on the property?
- Injury: Did you suffer physical injuries? If no injuries occurred, it may be difficult to recover compensation.
