Premises Liability

California Lawyers Handling Premises Liability Claims

Property owners are legally obligated to take steps to keep the people on their properties safe. Owners of apartment buildings must keep tenants safe. Owners of grocery stores and retail stores must keep shoppers safe. Owners of gas stations, nightclubs, strip malls and all other commercial properties must keep patrons safe. When they fail to take the appropriate safety precautions and someone gets hurt, they should be held responsible.

What Duties Does a Property Owner Have?

While it is true that some accidents are simply not preventable, many are. If a strip mall is regularly the site of parking lot assaults, the property owners have good reason to improve security. If they do not and another person is assaulted, they should be held accountable. If a stairwell is obviously in disrepair and remains in disrepair for weeks, a person who falls down the steps can take action against the property owner. Essentially, the property owner is responsible for preventing any accidents that are obviously foreseeable.
