Premises Liability Cases In California

When we are at home, we typically act to ensure that our dwellings are as safe as they can be. However, not everyone else adheres to this policy. When they do not, and you have been injured by someone else's negligence on their property, a personal injury lawsuit is one way to demand accountability and obtain resources to recover from your injuries.

At the Ewaniszyk Law Firm, each of our lawyers is prepared to review your case, help you access professional assessments of your long-term needs, and construct a compelling claim that will yield a settlement or an award if the case goes to trial.

Injury Situations That May Result In A Premises Liability Claim

If you live in Apple Valley, our office there can match you up with more than just a "slip-and-fall lawyer." There are many types of mishaps that are found in valid premises liability claims, including:

  • Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents
  • Assaults on a commercial property that are due to lax security
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Fires
  • Flooding of a property resulting in a personal injury
  • Toxic fumes and chemical spills

What Makes A Strong Claim?

Even if you have been suffered a significant injury, you may wonder if it rises to the level that would make a strong claim in court. California law recognizes four elements that must be present in order for you to make a personal injury claim:

  1. The property owner/operator owed you "duty of care" — meaning they legally were responsible for your well-being.
  2. The owner/operator breached that duty by their negligent behavior.
  3. There is clear evidence of harm. In other words, you were demonstrably injured on the other person's property.
  4. The negligent behavior of the property owner/operator contributed directly to the harm you suffered.

Our firm can help you document each element of your claim so it will lead to a result that provides the compensation you need.
