Santa Monica Premises Liability Lawyer
Peter, a premises liability client of the firm.
A property owner or occupant has a duty to maintain the property in a safe condition. The level of care varies depending on whether the visitor is customer, guest or trespasser. The law in the area is complicated and calls for the knowledge and courtroom skill of an experienced premises liability attorney. Whether you have been injured in a slip and fall accident in a supermarket or been hurt in a neighbor's home from a faulty railing, you are urged to contact a Santa Monica personal injury lawyer to discuss your case.
Duty of Care
The highest duty of care is owed to customers. A supermarket has a duty to regularly inspect its floors for pools of water or objects fallen from shelves. Once a danger is spotted, the supermarket must fix the matter immediately and post warnings in the meantime. There is also a duty to provide security including proper lighting in parking lots.
A guest in a home is also owed a duty of care by the owner. Uneven stair steps need to be fixed to avoid slips and falls. Dog bites from one's dog must be prevented.
Even trespassers are owed a duty of care. A homeowner must guard against swimming pool accidents by fencing off or covering pools to secure from neighboring
