Key Elements of a Premises Liability Claim in Fresno

Premises liability claims in California are based on negligence. You must prove that you were injured due to the way the owner or manager maintained the property.

The following are the elements you must prove in a premises liability lawsuit:

  • The property owner has control of the property where the accident occurred
  • The defendant was negligent in using or maintaining the property
  • You suffered an injury
  • The property owner’s negligence was a significant reason you were injured

The property owner has a “duty of care” to ensure that individuals who enter the premise are safe from harm. Common examples include cleaning up spills, placing a warning sign near a hazardous condition, or providing sufficient lighting.

Common Fresno Premises Liability Incidents

When a person slips or trips because a property owner failed to maintain the premises or because a company failed to follow safety procedures, an accident victim could suffer serious injury. They could fall and break a bone. If they fall a long distance or if something heavy falls on them, a victim could suffer a debilitating spinal cord injury or brain injury. They could also suffer burn injuries in the event of a fire or contact with a chemical substance or exposed electrical wiring.

Common types of premises liability cases include:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Negligent security
  • Fire and explosions
  • Chemical injuries
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
