Requirements to File a Premises Liability Claim
California premises liability law largely resolves around a concept known
as "duty of care." Duty of care is the responsibility of safety
a property owner has for visitors of the property. This varies depending
on the circumstances of the incident. For instance, a store owner may
owe duty of care to a customer during regular business hours, but not
to a trespasser who has broken into the premises after hours.
In a premises liability, an injury victim must prove:
- The property owner owed them duty of care.
- There was a breach of that duty of care by the owner.
- That the breach directly lead to the injury.
In these cases, the burden of proof lies with the injured victim—and

attorneys are ready to help you bear that burden. We can help you document
the conditions that led to your injury, structure your suit, and soundly
