Injuries suffered on someone else’s property can be as diverse as the types of accidents and the people who are injured in them. Here is a short list of the types of injuries we most often see in premises liability claims:
When you’re injured on someone else’s property, and the injury wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses and other accident-related losses. Determining what compensation you may be eligible for will be a job for your attorney. Your compensation could be made up of money from any of these categories:
In order to prove negligence in California for a premises liability case, you need to prove that your accident occurred as a result of the property owner or manager’s action or lack thereof and that you were injured in the accident.
If, for example, prior to your accident occurring, there was a puddle of standing water identified by a property owner to have been caused by a leak. Say the property owner doesn’t fix the leak and mop up the puddle, nor do they put up a caution sign notifying visitors of the leak/puddle. The next day, you drop in and slip and fall on the standing water. You become injured as a result. In this hypothetical, you would be able to sue the property owner or manager for negligence. They were aware of a potential hazard and did nothing to remove it. Their inaction led to your injuries.
In California, the statute of limitations requires that you file a lawsuit within two years from the date of injury. If you’re filing a lawsuit against a city, county, or California state government agency, the statute of limitations is six months from the date of injury. Should you file your lawsuit after the statutory deadline, the court may dismiss your case. If they do, you will lose the opportunity to pursue compensation for your injuries through the courts.
Premises liability accidents occur daily across the United States. Here’s what the numbers look like in our state:
