Two common causes of action under California premises liability law are slip and fall accidents caused by negligent maintenance and injury sustained in a criminal assault due to negligent security on the premises.
Premises Liability Law: Slip and Fall Injuries
Serious injury may occur when staff or management at a commercial office or retail store fails to exercise proper precautions to prevent a slip and fall accident caused by a wet floor, uneven floor surface or foreign objects in a walkway (often referred to as a trip and fall accident).
In these cases, we must prove that the property owner, manager and/or staff knew or reasonably should have known of the danger and failed to warn visitors, remedy the situation or otherwise act to prevent serious injury, such as broken bones (ankle, wrist, hip, etc.) or a head injury in a slip and fall accident.
Premises Liability Law: Negligent Security
Negligent security, such as failure to provide adequate lighting in parking lots or to secure doors and windows, can be a cause of action in a premises liability claim. When security negligence allows a visitor, shopper or business patron to suffer injury in a mugging or assault, the commercial property owners may be held liable as well.
