San Diego Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer
The term “premises liability” refers to the liability of certain persons for injuries and damages to others arising from the ownership or possession of real property. In San Diego, as with all of California, premises liability is based on general principles of negligence and is controlled both by statute and case law. Premises liability actions have traditionally involved “slip and fall” causes of action. There is no precise way to determine who is at fault when a slip and fall injury occurs. However, despite sounding innocent, a slip and fall can lead to significant injury – such as broken bones, or even spinal cord or brain injuries.

In California, simply owning or occupying land does not make that person liable for injuries sustained on the property. There must be some form of negligence on the part of the owner or occupier of property before there can be any premises liability. An owner of occupier of property is negligent if he or she fails to use reasonable care to keep the property in a reasonably safe condition. It is often up to a jury to determine whether a property owner or occupier acted reasonably, considering all the circumstances which led to the injury. Careful analysis by an experienced California slip and fall attorney is required because of the many different types of situations that give rise to premises liability.
