Owning property means taking responsibility for the safety of people you invite onto your property. Whether you were injured at a retail store or on any other commercial or residential premises, the property owner may be liable for your injuries.

Experienced With All Types of Premises Liability Circumstances
Under California premises liability law, property owners owe different levels of responsibility depending on the type of premises they operate and the extent to which they have invited or allowed people to enter. Our attorneys are experienced at handling cases involving:
- Negligent security: Property owners have a responsibility to keep public and common areas reasonably secure and can, in some cases, be held accountable for acts of violence.
- Sports and recreational injuries: If you've been injured at a gym or other athletic or recreational facility, the premises owner may be liable for your injuries.
- Swimming pool accidents: Swimming pools are potentially dangerous facilities that must be carefully maintained and overseen by their owners.
- Amusement park injuries: Many amusement parks contain potential dangers that the companies operating them have a duty to remove or warn against.
- Construction site injuries: Both workers and passersby are entitled to bring personal injury claims for construction accidents caused by a property owner's negligence.
- Scaffolding and ladder falls: When property owners have control over the placement of scaffolds and ladders, they have a duty to try to avoid accidents.
- Electrical injuries: When someone is electrocuted or suffers electrical injury due to exposed wiring or fallen power lines on someone else's property, the owner may be liable.
Slip-and-fall accidents: Commercial, residential, governmental and industrial property owners can all be held liable when their negligence causes people to slip and fall.
