Types of Premises Liability Claims
Property liability law refers to the body of personal injury law that holds a property owner responsible for certain injuries that result from an accident that occurred on the premises. Whether you were injured on residential, commercial, or industrial property, all of these landowners are required by California's premises liability laws to keep their properties free and clear of any immediate danger.
When a floor is covered with sharp or obstructive objects, a spill is not cleaned up, or a cracked sidewalk is left unrepaired, accidents and serious injuries can occur.
Common examples of premises liability claims include:
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Fires and explosions
- Inadequate security
- Slip and fall accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Accidents in retail shops, restaurants, or apartment complexes
Because premises liability claims will require proof that someone else's negligence directly caused your accident, it is crucial that you speak immediately with an attorney after your accident to preserve the evidence and begin building a strong case.
The more time passes, the more likely it is that evidence will be cleared away or that witnesses will forget what they saw.

Should I hire a lawyer for my personal injury case?There are several reasons for hiring a lawyer to represent you in your personal injury claim, rather than representing yourself. 1.) It allows you to focus on your own recovery, rather than the complicated details of your case. 2.) By hiring a skilled personal injury attorney to research your case and represent you in court, your chances of success improve drastically.
How long will my personal injury case take to resolve?
This number can vary from one case to another, depending on the details of your situation. A lawsuit can take anywhere from several months to several years to settle.
What is the average settlement amount for a personal injury claim?
The average compensation amount for a personal injury case is anywhere from $3,000 to $75,000, depending on what type of damages you are pursuing.
Does California put damage caps on claims for personal injury cases?
No, only Medical Malpractices cases have a cap. California Civil Code section 3333.2 sets a cap on the amount of non-economic damages (pain and suffering) that can be recovered in a medical malpractice case. The maximum amount that may be recovered is $250,000. All other Personal Injury cases are not subject to any cap.
