Property owners are obligated under law to keep their properties safe for authorized visitors and for those doing business there. When a property owner fails to abide by these laws, people can suffer personal injuries which can range from non-serious injuries to those which are life-changing and very devastating. If you’ve been injured while on a property owned by someone else, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries and the damages related to them.
Premises liability injuries are often caused by:
- Water left on walkways
- Insufficient lighting
- Poor construction
- Shoddy materials
- Building code violations
- Inadequate security
Common Types of Injuries Sustained in Premises Liability Cases
In California, property owners have a duty to keep their properties safe and to warn others of any dangerous conditions present if such conditions exist. Premises liability cases cover all cases wherein a property owner is in breach of that duty of care, allowing for dangerous conditions to exist on the property wherein bodily injury is caused to others. Among the most common types of injuries in premises liability cases include:
- Broken bones
- Electric shock
- Head injuries
- Neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Inhalation Injuries
Property owners of all types are legally obligated to take steps to keep people on their property safe. Apartment building owners must keep tenants safe. Retail store owners must keep shoppers safe. Owners of bars, shopping centers and other commercial properties must keep customers safe. When property owners fail to do this and someone becomes injured, they can and should be held responsible.
When visiting a property, most of us expect that our best interests and safety are a top concern. However, this is not always the case. The negligence of property owners and their employees can and do lead to a wide range of injuries including those which are permanent.
