What are Premises Liability Laws?

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney  

What are Premises Liability LawsIn California, if someone is injured on your property, you are liable for the damages under certain circumstances. The law that governs these situations is called premises liability law. Premises liability law is governed by both state and local law. If you have been injured on someone else's property, Mr. Hamdam, Los Angeles personal injury lawyer, can help.


Often, when people think of premises law, they think of slips and falls. This is because many high profile cases involving personal injuries have involved this type of accident. However, premises liability law covers a variety of injuries, including slips and falls, dog bites and construction accidents, as well as other types of accidents.

 

To have a case, the plaintiff or injured party must prove that the owner of the property was negligent and did not exercise due care. For instance, if the plaintiff slipped and fell on a wet floor that did not have a wet floor sign, the judge will probably find the owner negligent for not letting the visitors or customers know that the floor is wet. However, if they had a highly visible wet floor sign, the judge will be less likely to find that the owner was negligent.

 

In many cases, premises liability law has many gray areas. This is why it is important to seek legal advice before you take the matter to court. Farhad Hamdam, Los Angeles premises liability attorney, knows the intimate details of California premises liability law. He has helped many clients get the compensation they deserve for their injury.
