During your free initial consultation, a California premises liability lawyer will assess your case and evaluate any evidence you have gathered to determine if you have grounds for a claim. For your case to be successful, you must be able to prove that the at-fault party owed you a duty of care, breached that duty of care, and the breach of duty caused your injuries.
Parties who control, possess, or own a property in California have a duty to keep their premises in reasonably safe condition. If they fail to fix a dangerous condition or to warn people about it, this may constitute a breach of the duty of care, also called “negligence.”
The following are common examples of negligence in premises liability cases:
- Leaving debris in walkways;
- Not cleaning up a spilled liquid;
- Not fixing holes on the property;
- Not ensuring floor surfaces are dry;
- Failing to abide by building codes;
- Not installing sufficient lighting in stairwells;
- Failing to perform necessary maintenance on the building; and
- Not fixing pulled or torn carpet.
Our Premises Liability Attorneys Will Help You Gather Valuable Evidence
Overlooking just one piece of evidence could lead to a dispute related to liability or damages. The California premises liability lawyers at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers will thoroughly investigate your case to compile all available evidence that may be used to support your claim. This evidence might include:
- Incident and police reports;
- Testimony from eyewitnesses;
- CCTV camera footage of your accident;
- Building codes to prove a violation;
- Records of similar accidents occurring on the same premises;
- Records of building maintenance; and
- Photographs of your injuries and the hazard that caused them.
If you wait too long to contact our law firm, surveillance camera footage might be erased. The liable party might also cover up evidence of negligence by fixing the dangerous condition that caused your injuries. Without surveillance footage and documentation of the hazard that caused your accident, it may be more difficult to prove liability.
The sooner you contact our injury law firm, the sooner we can investigate your accident. Will we review every aspect of your case, interview witnesses, and possibly bring in expert witnesses to ensure your case is as strong as possible before we enter settlement negotiations. Did we mention, all consultations are free? That’s right, all consultations are free and can be done over the phone or in person.
