In almost all states, the law has statutes in place that require property owners to maintain their premises to certain standards and to provide reasonable safety for people who are on the property lawfully. Oftentimes, the duty extends to regularly inspecting the property in an effort to identify dangerous conditions and to warn of potential hazards. When property owners fail to respect their legal obligations, legal action can be brought against the responsible party or parties.
Proving Negligence in a Premises Liability Case in CA
Being injured on someone else’s property can often justify suing them in court. However, there must first be specific elements proven in order to bring about a successful case. You will need to demonstrate that the accident was the property owner’s fault. Proving negligence requires showing 4 factors in court:
- The property owner owed you a duty to keep you safe;
- The owner breached that duty;
- The breach caused your injuries; and
- You suffered actual injuries and/or damages that the court can compensate you for.
Clearly, you will also have to identify who is the legal property owner. These objectives can be especially difficult if you are disabled due to your injury, either temporarily or permanently, or are under current medical treatment. Recovery can be a long and tiring road. Fontana Personal Injury Attorney Brian Banner and his experienced legal team can help you accomplish establishing negligence and so much more. We will investigate the incident, collect and preserve pertinent evidence, get medical reports and expert opinions, and get your claim moving toward settlement or trial if needed.
Common Causes of Premises Liability Cases
Negligent Security – The failure to provide reasonable protection and safety to patrons or visitors.
Swimming Pool Accidents or Drowning – An absence of fencing, gates, supervision, or skilled lifeguarding can come into play in a negligence case.
Slip, Trip & Fall Accidents – The most commonly reported of all Premises Liability cases. Hazardous conditions are everywhere, and when a property owner fails to warn of a dangerous condition, or knows about it and fails to remedy it, accidents and injuries can occur.
Dog Attacks/Dog Bites – California’s civil code provides, to almost no exclusion, that dog owners are responsible for the injuries and damages that they cause.
Premises Liability law can be complex. There may be multiple factors involved which caused the injury, whereby more than one person or entity could be at-fault and subject to culpability. If you are unfamiliar with California’s negligence laws, you may not know what compensation you are entitled to receive.
Damages You Can Seek Compensation For in Your Premises Liability Claim
Invariably, life rolls on even after a devastating injury. However, now you may be off work, not earning an income for your family, and the medical bills may be mounting. You need to be compensated for your losses so that your family can be cared for and you can continue to enjoy your normal way of life – without draining your savings or going into debt! In California negligence cases you can seek reimbursement and restitution for economic and non-economic damages. Some of the claims for compensation can include:
- Medical bills stemming from the incident
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Long-term medical care
- Emotional distress
- Wrongful death, if a death resulted
- Loss of companionship/loss of consortium
If you reach out to, or are contacted by, the responsible party’s insurance company, they will most likely either deny accountability outright or may try to quickly close the claim for an amount far below the actual value. You may be tempted to accept a low-ball offer from an insurance company in an effort to get fast funds to support your family or to put the whole incident behind you. Don’t take the chance that you and your family will be victimized twice. Get legal assistance from a Fontana Premises Liability Lawyer to protect your rights and seek justice. Get it today.
