Santa Monica Premises Liability Lawyer
Peter, a premises liability client of the firm.
A property owner or occupant has a duty to maintain 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 owned 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
