Injured On Someone Else’s Property? We Can Help.
If you were injured on someone else’s property—whether public or private—you may be entitled to financial compensation for your damages. In California, property owners have a duty of care to those who are lawfully on their property. In other words, property owners must take reasonable action to ensure that their premises are safe for visitors, customers, guests, tenants, employees, etc.

When Is A Property Owner Negligent?
Like most other types of personal injury cases, premises liability cases are based on negligence. In order to bring a claim against a property owner or manager, you must show that he or she acted negligently.
To do this, you will need to prove that:
- The property owner owed you a duty of care (i.e. you were lawfully on the property)
- The property owner acted negligently by:
- Failing to properly inspect the property
- Failing to keep the property reasonably maintained
- Failing to fix or repair a dangerous condition
- Failing to warn you that the dangerous condition existed
- This negligence led to your injuries/damages
For example, if an employee at a grocery store is mopping up a spill but fails to put out warning signs that the floor is wet, a customer may slip and fall on the wet floor. The customer may break her wrist or suffer a serious head injury. Because the employee failed to properly warn the customer that the floor was wet (the dangerous condition), the grocery store manager or owner may be liable for the customer’s resulting medical bills and other damages.
