Property owners have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their property and visitors. If a property owner fails to take sufficient safety measures and a visitor is injured, the property owner can be held liable for the resulting damages. These are known as "premises liability" claims.
At Alvandi Law Group, P.C., our experienced team of attorneys is dedicated to helping you secure the compensation you deserve when you've been injured due to dangerous conditions on someone else's property. We understand the complexities of premises liability law and are here to guide you through the process while fighting vigorously for your rights.
What is Premises Liability?
Premises liability is a legal concept that deals with the responsibility of property owners or occupiers to maintain a safe environment for individuals who enter their premises. When someone is injured or harmed while on another person's property due to the property owner's negligence or failure to maintain a safe environment, they may have grounds for a premises liability lawsuit. This area of law is crucial in protecting the rights of visitors, customers, or tenants, as it holds property owners accountable for the safety of their premises.
Common types of premises liability cases include:
- Slip and Fall Accidents: These are among the most common premises liability cases. They occur when someone slips, trips, or falls on a property due to hazards such as wet floors, uneven surfaces, loose carpeting, or icy walkways.
- Trip and Fall Accidents: Similar to slip and fall cases, trip and fall accidents involve individuals tripping over objects or hazards on the property, such as protruding cords, debris, or poorly maintained walkways.
- Inadequate Maintenance: Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises, including repairing defects, keeping the property in good condition, and addressing issues like broken stairs, faulty handrails, or damaged flooring.
- Negligent Security: Property owners may be liable if they fail to provide adequate security measures, leading to criminal acts or assaults on their premises. This often applies to apartment complexes, parking lots, or commercial properties.
- Dog Bites and Animal Attacks: When a property owner has a dog or another animal that attacks a visitor, they may be held liable for the injuries caused by the animal if they knew or should have known about its dangerous propensities.
- Swimming Pool Accidents: Property owners with swimming pools must take appropriate safety measures, including installing fencing and providing warnings to prevent accidents like drownings or slip and fall incidents around the pool area.
- Elevator and Escalator Accidents: If elevators or escalators on a property are poorly maintained and result in injuries to visitors, the property owner or manager can be held responsible.
- Toxic Substances and Hazardous Materials: Exposure to toxic substances like lead paint, asbestos, or mold due to the property owner's negligence can lead to premises liability claims.
- Falling Objects: If objects or debris fall from a building or structure on the property and injure someone, the property owner may be liable if they failed to maintain the premises adequately.
- Retail Store Accidents: Customers injured in stores due to hazards like wet floors, cluttered aisles, or falling merchandise may file premises liability claims against the store owner.
To successfully pursue a premises liability case, the injured party typically needs to establish that the property owner was negligent, and their negligence directly caused the injury. Proving negligence often involves demonstrating that the property owner knew about or should have known about the hazardous condition and failed to address it or provide adequate warnings.

How much time do you have to file a death benefits claim?
In California, the statute of limitations for workers’ compensation claims is one year from the date of the work-related accident. If you need to claim death benefits through workers’ compensation, then the statute of limitations will likely be the same one year, which is not much time. But if you are pursuing damages through a wrongful death claim filed in civil court, then the statute of limitations is two years. To be sure you do not miss any important deadlines, you should always work with an experienced attorney.
How long does it take to settle a talc powder lawsuit?Talc powder lawsuits are often formed into a larger class action lawsuit, which has its benefits. However, reaching a conclusion to a class action lawsuit is often more time-consuming than managing an individual injury claim. Depending on how your talc powder lawsuit pans out, it could take anywhere from a year to several years to reach a conclusion.
Is PTSD covered?
California workers’ compensation law actually allows for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to be covered in some situations. The key is that it must be shown through a medical diagnosis from a mental health professional that the PTSD experienced by the claimant is directly caused by or related to their work. As a firefighter who must endure a stressful work environment with severe dangers practically every day, it is not a stretch to imagine that the job can cause PTSD, anxiety, depression, and other mental health difficulties.
Does workers’ comp apply when you’re injured while working during an emergency shift?
As you know, firefighters are sometimes called in an emergency to help with a particularly dangerous blaze or situation. You can be resting at home on a planned vacation when duty calls you to come help save lives. If you get hurt while you are working an unscheduled emergency shift, you are still eligible for workers’ compensation coverage. Your benefits are based on your work, not on your schedule.
