Property owners have a legal obligation to properly maintain their property. They always need to make sure it’s reasonably safe to walk on their premises. This does not mean they always have to guarantee your safety. It does mean they have to take reasonable steps to keep their property safe.
Unfortunately, some property owners don't take this responsibility seriously. As a result, accidents happen, which often result in serious injuries. These personal injury accidents are classified as premises liability accidents.
Knowing what to do after a serious premises liability accident in California can be confusing. Even knowing what your rights are might not be clear. That's why it's critical that you talk to a lawyer at Clancy & Diaz, LLP. An experienced Walnut Creek premises liability attorney at our firm can explain all your available legal options and which one makes the most sense for you.
Examples of premises liability accidents
Common examples of premises liability accidents include:
You should not have to pay for the medical expenses and bills that result from such an accident. Instead, you should file a claim as soon as possible with the help of an experienced premises liability lawyer.
Many instances of personal injury accidents are the result of a property owner who fails to maintain their property to keep it safe and free of hazards. Anyone who has suffered an injury in an accident that could have been prevented by the property owner has every right to file a premises liability claim and fight for compensation.
