What Is Considered Premises Liability?

Premises liability refers to the legal concept that holds property owners responsible for injuries or damages that occur on their property due to unsafe or hazardous conditions. In general, property owners have a duty of care to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition for visitors, guests, customers, or tenants.

When a person is injured or suffers harm on someone else's property, they may have a premises liability claim if they can establish that:

  • The breach of duty caused the injury.
  • The visitor suffered damages.
  • The property owner had a duty of care towards them.
  • There was a breach of the duty of care.

Premises liability cases can arise from a wide range of situations, including:

  • slip and falls
  • construction site accidents
  • dog bites
  • swimming pool accidents
  • inadequate security leading to assaults or robberies

The specific laws and requirements for premises liability claims may vary by jurisdiction.

Invitee vs. Licensee vs. Trespasser

Your relationship with the property owner is crucial for the validity of your premises liability claim, perhaps more than you realize. In California premises liability law, there are several types of guests and visitors, each owed different duties of care by the property owner.

The three main visitor categories under the law are:

  • Invitee: If you were invited to the property for business purposes or for the sole benefit of the property owner, you are considered an invitee. Property owners owe the highest duty of care to invitees. Customers in retail stores and grocery shoppers are common examples of invitees.
  • Licensee: If you were invited to the property for social purposes or mutual benefit, you are classified as a licensee. Property owners owe a moderate duty of care to licensees. For instance, if you visit a friend's home for recreational purposes, you are a licensee.
  • Trespasser: If you were on the property without permission and in violation of the law, you are considered a trespasser. Property owners owe little to no duty of care to trespassers, making it highly challenging to file a claim as an injured trespasser.

Common Hazards on Properties

Here are a few common examples of property hazards that often lead to accidents:

  • Uplifted carpets
  • Slippery tile floors
  • Wet floors or spills
  • Loose cables and wiring
  • Damaged or uneven steps
  • Missing handrails
  • Dimly lit walkways

What is Comparative Fault in CA?

California follows the doctrine of comparative fault in premises liability cases. This means that if the injured party is found partially at fault for their own injuries, their compensation may be reduced proportionately based on their percentage of fault.

California Statute of Limitations for Premises Liability

In California, the statute of limitations for premises liability cases is generally 2 years from the date of the injury or discovery of the injury. This means that an injured party has two years to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for their premises liability claim.
