Experienced Premises Liability Lawyers in the Pomona Area

Under California law, property owners have a duty to keep their property free of dangerous hazards. If someone, such as an invited guest or a shopper, injures themselves on the property, the owner could be liable for damages.

However, as a practical matter, it is often difficult to show that the property owner should be held liable for injuries. They will have the opportunity to clean up after you, in a sense. This means that evidence that could show they were negligent may no longer be present. The property owner may also argue that you, the injured person, contributed to the injury through your own negligence. A skilled liability lawyer will aim to cut through any smoke screens and reveal the truth about the case.

The Elements of Premises Injury Liability

You would need to present a few elements in a premises injury liability case to recover damages from the property owner.

  • The injury: This is the damage or harm caused by the negligence of the property owner or their agent. You should have substantive proof that you were injured and an explanation of how it happened from your point of view.
  • The location: Note where the injury occurred. Was it at a private residence? On the sidewalk? A store? The owner has a duty to maintain a safe property if that property is under their control.
  • The cause of the injury: You will need to show the circumstances that led to the injury. It can be anything from a bucket of water left in a walkway to an unkempt lawn that hid some danger.
  • The liability: Who is really responsible for the injury? Did the owner or their agent know of the dangerous conditions? Should they have known? If they knew, did they attempt to repair the injury? What, if anything, did your actions contribute?

The injuries you suffer because of the negligence of a property owner can be substantial. You may incur large medical expenses. You may miss a substantial amount of work and meanwhile have your usual bills to pay and children to feed. You will need to collect from the person responsible.

Our liability lawyers know how to make a strong case that allows you to be compensated for your injuries. We know what questions to ask and what kind of evidence shows that the property owner breached their duty to maintain a safe place for visitors.
