How Premises Liability Claims Work
Premises liability claims depend largely on a legal concept called "duty of care." Duty of care is the responsibility property owners and managers have to provide a safe environment for visitors they expect or want on their property. When that duty is neglected and others are hurt, victims have the grounds to pursue compensation.
Premises liability claimants must prove:
- That they were owed duty of care from the property owner
- They the lack of duty of care led to dangerous conditions
- That the owners had reasonable time to address those conditions
- That those conditions led directly to the injury in question
"Slip and fall" cases are the most common type of premises liability claims, but nearly any kind of injury can be addressed by these suits, provided that it meets the conditions above. If you believe that your injury qualifies for this kind of legal action, then call us today.
It is possible to put your injury behind you with the compensation and support you deserve. Contact our Bakersfield premises liability attorneys at (661) 761-1532 today.
