- Roberts Law Firm, APC
If you enter someone else’s property; whether as a guest, a customer, a tenant, or in just about any other capacity; you have the right to expect that the owner of the property has maintained the property so that that you are relatively safe while on the property. This applies in all places from a private residence or apartment building, a shopping center, an office building, on city sidewalks, or in most public gathering areas.
When a property owner does not meet a reasonable standard of safety, and they have been made aware that a hazard exists, they can be held liable for any injuries you may sustain as a result. This can include any number of possible scenarios, such as:
If you are a victim of these or any other number of similar situations, you can retain the services of a premises liability attorney and seek compensation for your damages.
In a premises liability case, the key is proving negligence on the part of the property owner. However, to do this, a premises liability attorney in Irvine must prove that the property owner was aware of the hazard that caused the accident. The owner may be able to make a valid defense and avoid paying damages if they can show they had no knowledge of the deficiency prior to the accident taking place.
