When Is a Property Owner Liable for Accidents?
In California, property owners are not automatically liable for accidents and injuries that occur on their properties. They do, however, owe high standards of care to visitors they invite to their properties. If you are an invitee, a landowner must lawfully search the area for hidden hazards, repair any obvious property defects and warn you of things that may hurt you. Failing to adhere to these duties could be grounds for a liability claim if it results in an injury.
An important exception to California’s premises liability law is if you were trespassing at the time of the incident. Property owners do not owe any duties of care to trespassers, or people who enter their properties without permission. If the trespasser was a minor under the age of 18, however, the owner of the land will still owe certain duties of care to keep the premises safe. If your lawyer can prove the property owner in question breached a duty of care owed to you and that this is what caused your injuries, you could receive compensation for your losses.
Are You Eligible for Damages?
A property owner’s specific duties of care will depend on your status as a visitor and the circumstances of your accident. Some of the most common premises liability accidents we see at Rose, Klein & Marias are slip/trip and falls, escalator/elevator accidents, dog bites, swimming pool accidents, exposure to hazardous substances, burns from fires, electrocutions, and structural collapses. If you suffered an injury in any of these types of accidents, you could have a case against the property owner and/or tenant of a rented property for negligence. The compensatory award you could receive may include payments for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
