When you are injured on someone else's property due to a hazardous or dangerous condition that should have removed, you may be eligible to pursue a premises liability legal claim. Under the laws in California, a property manager or owner is responsible for ensuring that his or her property is reasonably safe. He or she is also responsible for warning others if a dangerous condition does exist on the property. To make sure you get fair compensation after an accident, contact the San Luis Obispo premises liability lawyers at The May Firm today!
Premises liability cases cover all situations in which the owner breaches a duty of care and allows a dangerous condition to remain on the property that ultimately causes bodily injury to others. Some of the most common types of injuries and premises liability legal claims can be associated with dog bites; people falling off a ladder; slip, trip, and fall accidents; swimming pool drownings; inadequate security; exposure to hazardous material; and inappropriate lighting in common areas. Unfortunately, these injuries often occur as a result of the negligence of the property manager or owner, either with regard to not repairing the property and removing the dangerous condition or failing to warn others about the presence of such a dangerous condition. If you have slipped and recently fallen as a result of a hazardous condition on someone else's property, it is imperative that you consult with a lawyer sooner rather than later to verify your rights and to move forward with a lawsuit if necessary.
A myth believed by many people is that if you are present on a person's property and you are hurt in any way then it is the property owner's fault. There are specific criteria that must be met In order to recover damages in a premises liability lawsuit. A hazardous condition must exist on the property that an owner knew about, or should have known and did not repair the defect or dangerous condition of the property. If the injury you sustained on someone else’s property meets the above criteria, you need to find a California premises liability attorney with experience in the field.
One of the most important factors in any premises liability case has to do with the presence of insurance. After such an injury, the injured person may be contacted by the insurance company of the property owner. The insurance company is monetarily incentivized to minimize the full extent of the claim. It may suggest a settlement offer that is not in line with the full extent of your injuries. The agent will typically reach out to the injured party as soon as possible after the accident occurs and asks for a recorded statement. Be aware that any statements you make to the insurance company in this or any other format could hurt your case down the road. In order to protect yourself from the ramifications of speaking to anyone else regarding the accident, it is imperative to consult with a San Luis Obispo premises liability lawyer as soon as possible following the accident. Consulting with a San Luis Obispo premises attorney also gives you the best possible opportunity to evaluate any and all settlement offers to determine whether or not the settlement offers are fair.
