California law requires landlords, managers, and tenants to maintain their properties in a reasonably safe condition for guests. The good news is that some property owners and managers can keep strong safety standards on their properties in California City and other parts of the state.
The bad news is that many other landlords, managers, and owners are deemed to be lacking in that area. A preventable accident claims the life of one person every second, according to the National Safety Council. The terrible part is that most of these injuries and wrongful deaths, if not all of them, might have been prevented. You have the right to initiate a premises liability claim or lawsuit against the person in charge of keeping the premises safe if you were hurt because a property owner or manager failed to maintain the property’s safety.
According to California’s premises liability legislation, if a property owner, manager, supervisor, or managing entity was reckless or negligent, you may be able to hold them accountable for any personal injury you suffered while on their property. You have the right to file a lawsuit for fair compensation if they failed to take the required precautions to keep property visitors safe.
More than simply being hurt on someone else’s property is required to establish premises liability. After all, a number of factors, some of which might not be ideal, could have contributed to your injury. An illegal entry to a construction site, for instance, could result in a person falling through the decking and breaking their bones. However, you might not be able to bring a premises liability claim against the owner or manager of the property if you weren’t supposed to be there in the first place.
The responsible party is the one who has the authority to make choices that could jeopardise the security of legitimate visitors to the premises. Once you’re certain that the managing entity or person was accountable in some way, you must provide hard evidence to support your claims. You must look for specific components in order to do this.
