Holding Property Owners Responsible for Unsafe Premises
Property owners must keep their premises safe for visitors. This means being aware of and addressing potential risks or hazards that could cause harm. Failing to uphold the duty of care can lead to catastrophic or even fatal injuries. You may have legal recourse if you are seriously injured on someone else's property. Reaching out to a personal injury lawyer can be beneficial in pursuing compensation for resulting damages such as physical pain, medical expenses, and lost wages.

Premises liability claims arise when a person is injured due to a hazardous condition on someone else's property. Incidents can involve a slip and fall, pool accidents, electrocution, or other accidents.
Common causes for these accidents include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Loose tiles
- Worn carpeting
- Broken stairs
- Poor lighting
- Exposed wires
- Faulty wiring
Whatever the incident, it must have been caused by the property owner's failure to keep their premises safe and well-maintained for the victim to pursue a case. When a claim is filed, the injured party must prove fault to recover compensation.
An attorney can use a combination of strategies to identify the cause and liable party in a premises liability case. They can review photos or videos taken at the time of the incident, talk to witnesses, and consult experts to form a clearer picture of what happened. By identifying culpability, proper legal action can be taken.
Ensuring that visitors and guests are safe must be the property owner's priority. While predicting an accident is not always possible, fixing or warning against hazardous conditions on the premises is essential. If the property owner neglects their responsibility, the consequences can be severe, ranging from long-term debilitating injuries, such as brain and spine injuries, to fatal accidents.
If an injury does occur due to a breach of duty of care, the property owner may be liable and have to pay for damages.
The injured party may be able to collect compensation for the following:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Property damage
- Other out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
When determining who is at fault in these matters, thoroughly considering and reviewing the facts is crucial. Our San Diego premises liability attorneys understand this, which is why we take the time to examine, analyze, and discuss the evidence to assemble the strongest possible argument for our clients.
We strive to reach fair settlements through negotiation with insurance companies. However, we are not afraid to present our cases before a judge or jury if litigation is necessary. Our trial-tested lawyers can make compelling arguments in court to pursue successful outcomes for our clients.
