About Premises Liability

By Mark Bush  Feb. 4, 2011 4:21p

Premises liability is defined as the legal responsibility that property owners are required to maintain a reasonably safe property for any person who may enter their property. By maintaining a safe and secure property, the property owner can ensure that customers, visitors or guests, will be able to safely visit the property without a significant danger of suffering an accident. While some events are simply impossible to predict or protect against, property owners are legally required to eliminate potential hazards such as slippery floors or loose and dangerous objects in walkways. If you or a loved one has been injured on another person's property, contact a San Diego personal injury attorney as soon as possible to find out what options you have for pursuing a legal claim for compensation.

Although it may not be immediately obvious, property owners are required by law to take steps against violence or preventable accidents within their premises. In places such as retail stores and restaurants, parking lot lights, security cameras and even patrolling security guards are in fact meant to help keep people on the premises safe. Other safety measures such as salting snowy and icy parking lots and sidewalks, cleaning up spills or messes and removing hazardous objects that could hurt someone are all steps which businesses and property owners are required to take for their patrons or visitors. In the event that they fail in this duty and someone suffers an injury, the victim may be able to file a personal injury claim against the property owner.
