When you are a guest on someone else’s property – whether it’s a business or a private residence – the last thing you expect is to be injured in the process. If the property owner’s negligence, however, does cause you to be injured in the course of your visit, it can lead to a premises liability case.
Property owners owe a duty of care to their guests, and a breach of this duty can lead to dangerous accidents. If negligence results in an injury on someone else’s property, contact an experienced attorney from The Broadway Law Firm in Los Angeles.
The Property Owner’s Duty of Care
People who own, possess, or control property are obligated to conform to a reasonable duty of care, which includes:
- Adequately maintaining the property
- Adequately inspecting the property for potential dangers
- Adequately repairing any potential dangers
- Adequately warning guests regarding potential dangers that have not yet been repaired
When property owners fail to keep their properties in reasonably safe condition for their guests, they may be found legally liable for any injuries that ensue.
If you are injured on someone else’s property as a result of their negligence, the damages sought in your premises liability case can include:
- Your medical costs
- Your lost wages and diminished earning capacity (as applicable)
- Your pain and suffering
If someone else’s negligence leaves you injured on their property, the financial, physical, and emotional damages can be extensive.
