What Is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is a concept that refers to property owners' legal responsibilities to keep their properties reasonably safe for visitors and others who enter their premises. Premises liability laws vary by state, but they all share a common goal: to hold property owners accountable for dangerous property conditions that cause injuries to others.

Cases under premises liability typically arise in personal injury claims where some unsafe or defective condition caused the injury. Property owners are generally obligated to be alert to and address hazardous conditions on the premises as soon as possible or warn visitors about them to prevent accidents. 

This complex area of “tort” law addresses and provides remedies for civil wrongs. A tort can be intentional or accidental (negligent).

Common Areas For Premise Liability Accidents

In California, a wide variety of premises can be implicated in these cases:

  • Residential properties, such as houses, apartments, and condos.
  • Commercial properties, such as stores, shopping malls, and office buildings.
  • Public properties, such as parks, schools, churches, and government buildings.
  • Recreational properties, such as swimming pools, amusement parks, and sports stadiums.
  • Construction sites.
  • Parking lots and garages.

Atoyan Law helps injured victims file premises liability claims against all parties who may be liable for their injuries. This can include homeowners, property managers, building owners, business owners, security companies, and others.

Understanding Negligence in Premises Liability Cases

The negligence that can lead to premises liability injuries is typically a failure to maintain the property or to warn visitors of hazards. For example, a grocery store can fail to clean up a spill promptly, leading to a customer’s trip, slip, or fall accident, or a landlord can ignore a broken railing, leading to a tenant's injury.  Other hazards can include inadequate security, leading to assault or theft, poorly lit walkways, potholes, broken sidewalks, violations of building or safety codes, badly stacked overhead merchandise, or a failure to control a dangerous dog. Resulting injuries can range from broken bones and sprains to concussions, brain injuries, gunshot wounds, and more. 

Why Are Premises Liability Claims Complex?

Premises liability cases are often complex due to the difficulty in proving negligence and determining who is at fault. Multiple parties may be involved, from the property owner to the management company or even a third party. Proving that the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition can be challenging. Property insurers often respond to these claims by denying that a dangerous condition existed or arguing that the injured person was at fault. They may also downplay the severity of the injuries or try to settle for less than the claim is worth.

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Premises Liability Claim?

In California, premises liability cases are typically settled before trial. This is because California is a "modified comparative negligence state," meaning injured victims can recover damages even if they were partially at fault for their injuries. However, injured victims' recoverable damages are reduced by the percentage of their comparative negligence. Injured victims can recover damages for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses

How Long Do I Have To File A Premises Liability Claim?

In California, the timeframe to file a premises liability claim is governed by the statute of limitations. It's crucial for individuals to be aware that they generally have two years from the date of the incident to initiate a lawsuit for personal injuries sustained on someone else’s property. This legal deadline underscores the importance of consulting with a Los Angeles premises liability lawyer as soon as possible after an accident occurs.

The team of premises liability lawyers at Atoyan Law in Los Angeles possesses a deep understanding of the critical timing involved in these cases and offers essential advice on the best course of action. Not submitting your claim within the established two-year window may greatly risk your chances of obtaining compensation for injuries, healthcare costs, loss of income, and emotional distress.

Every situation comes with its unique complex challenges, and an experienced premises liability lawyer can play a crucial role in pinpointing the right actions to undertake, guaranteeing that your lawsuit is presented within the stipulated legal period. This protects your right to seek the justice and compensation that you are owed. Keep in mind that the sooner you engage with a legal professional, the more effectively they can gather essential evidence, witness testimonies, and build a strong case on your behalf before the deadline.
