If you or a loved one have been injured on another person’s property, you have the ability to seek compensation from the landowner. Contact us today.

When you are on another person’s land, many have the expectation that the land has been taken care of properly. In California, landowners have a duty to protect visitors from any foreseeable dangers. When a landowner fails to do so, they may be held liable under a premises liability legal theory. If you or a loved one have been injured while on another person’s property, you may have the right to seek compensation from the land owner. The compensation could differ depending on the circumstances of the accident. For example, you could recover compensation for your medical bills, your lost income, and many more.

What is a premises liability claim?

If you have suffered a knee injury on another person’s property, you have the right to seek monetary compensation against the property owner. The property owner is held to a high standard of care in California. This high standard of care means that the property owner must use their land in a reasonably safe manner. Failure to keep their property safe could result in liability in an accident.

 A property owner in California must constantly maintain and care for their property to prevent any future accidents. If they fail to do so, they will be financially liable to other third parties. This is specified under California Civil Code 1714.

 In order to prove premises liability, it is important that your attorney prove that the liable party had 100% control over the property, yet failed to take reasonably safe measures. It is very important to hire an experienced personal injury attorney to prove this element. This element can make or break your entire case.

What kind of damages could I recover for my premises liability claim?

The damages you could receive depend on several factors including:

  • Your liability
  • The severity of your injuries
  • The liability of the third party
  • Where the accident occurred

If you have suffered injuries on another person’s property, you may be able to hold the third party liable for damages including:

  • Economic damages: this refers to damages that are easily calculated such as medical bills, physical therapy, property damage, and future lost income.
  • Non-economic damages: this refers to the emotional trauma suffered by the injured victim during the accident. For example, escalator and elevator accidents could cause very extreme trauma and mental anguish.
  • Punitive damages: this is awarded in extremely rare cases in California. Punitive damages are meant to make an example out of the defendant, and are only awarded when the defendant has some type of malicious behavior towards the injured victim.

When should I file my premises liability accident claim in California?

California has a specific statute of limitations laws that address when a plaintiff could file a personal injury lawsuit. Filing the lawsuit after the statute of limitations time has run could cause the judge to completely dismiss your entire case. The court will reject your case if it is brought too late. Certain exceptions may exist to extend the statute of limitations; however it is only awarded in rare cases.

If you have been injured on another person’s property, you have two years from the date of the accident to file your claim.  That is why it is important to discuss your accident claim with an accident attorney immediately after you have suffered an injury.
