When a person is injured on another's property due to conditions on that property, then that victim may have grounds to file a premises liability claim. These cases are sometimes synonymous with "slip and fall" cases, but the truth is nearly any kind of injury can be addressed in a premises liability claim, depending on the circumstances. As long as certain requirements are met, owners and managers can be held liable for injuries that occur on their property.

Most Common Types of Premises Liability Accidents
Premises liability accidents can occur nearly anywhere - at the grocery store, shopping mall, retail store, or even a public park. Such incidents often occur due to the negligence of property owners or property owners who fail to maintain the premises or warn others of possible dangers on the property.
The Most Common Premises Liability Injuries:
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Insufficient Security or Negligent Security
- Drowning and Swimming Pool Injuries
- Defective Stairs or Walkways
- Elevator / Escalator Injuries
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 at The Law Office of Michael R. Loewen, our Sacramento premises liability 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 and thoroughly pursue the compensation you deserve.
