Establishing negligence on the part of a defendant in a car accident case is a matter of matching the facts of your case to the legal formula setting forth the required elements for a negligence cause of action. These include showing that the defendant owed you a duty of reasonable care, breached that duty, and that you were proximately harmed as a result. Ordinarily your plaintiff’s attorney will need to work with you to assemble the evidence necessary to establish each of these elements, through a combination of witness testimony, physical and documentary evidence.
It can be tempting, when one considers the subject of premises liability, to think that the duty of care that extends to others on real property belongs to the owner of that property. But while it is true that a property owner does have a duty to maintain property in a reasonably safe condition, a closer examination of how California courts have interpreted premises liability law shows that property owners are not the only ones who owe such a duty.
Did you know that it is your legal right to expect the premises of any California facility will be cared for and free of liabilities that could be potentially harmful? Safety precautions should always be made by business owners and building owners to keep everyone who is in the space safe. Not taking precautions or installing the proper equipment can lead to an injury quickly and financially ruin a business. Premises liability can even lead to a wrongful death.
