If you have been injured in a premises liability accident in Orange County, you need aggressive legal representation to protect your rights. Contact our premises liability attorneys at Beckerman Anderson today to get the justice and compensation you deserve.
In California, property owners are expected to anticipate, identify, and fix possible safety hazards. They have a duty to their guests, tenants, and visitors to keep their premises safe. Renters and landlords are not liable for every single accident that takes place on their property, but they can be held accountable for injuries that stem from their failure to maintain reasonably safe conditions. If you are hurt on another person’s property, you should seek the legal advice of an Orange County premises liability lawyer from Beckerman Anderson.
The term “premises,” so far as personal injury cases are concerned, refers to a structure, parcel of land, or place that is legally occupied, leased, or owned by someone with a vested interest.
Premises liability laws in California hold property owners, municipalities, and business owners responsible for injuries that happen on their properties provided that the injured victim can show that:
- The owner’s action or inaction, whether deliberate or accidental, was the cause of the hazardous condition that resulted in the injury.
- The owner was aware of the hazardous condition but made no attempt at replacement or repair or, in some other way, failed to stop an accident from taking place.
- The owner could have been reasonably expected to be aware of the hazardous condition.
- The hazardous condition or defect was the cause of your injury.
Property owners have both an ethical and legal responsibility to either fix or give notice of any known hazards on their property. Under the law, a property owner is obligated to routinely inspect the property for situations that could cause injuries; as such, they can be held liable for any harm that results from hazards of which they should have been aware but were not.
