Premises Liability Attorneys in San Diego

Every time we step into a grocery store, a friend’s house, or even a public park, there’s an inherent trust that the premises are safe.  But what happens when that trust is broken? This is where premises liability comes into play. In essence, premises liability revolves around the legal responsibility of property owners regarding the safety and well-being of visitors.

Premises liability is a legal doctrine that holds property owners and managers responsible for injuries that occur on their property due to their negligence. Negligence is defined as a failure to act with reasonable care. In order to succeed in a premises liability claim, you must prove that:

  • The owner or manager of the property owed you a duty of care.
  • The owner or manager breached their duty of care by failing to keep the property safe.
  • The breach of duty caused your injuries.
  • You suffered damages as a result of your injuries.

Premises liability claims can arise from a variety of accidents, including:

  • Slip and falls
  • Trip and falls
  • Dog bites
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Elevator accidents
  • Escalator accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Negligent security

If you have been injured on someone else’s property, you may have a premises liability claim. To begin, consult with a California personal injury lawyer to discuss your case and determine if you have a valid claim. If so, the lawyer will investigate the accident and gather evidence, such as witness statements, medical records, and photos.

Next, the premises liability lawyer will file a claim with the property owner’s insurance company. The insurance company will investigate the claim and determine whether to accept liability. If they accept liability, the parties will negotiate a settlement. If they cannot reach a settlement, the lawyer will file a lawsuit on your behalf.
