Free Case Evaluation

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.

What is liability insurance?

Liability insurance is a type of insurance that's super important for protecting individuals and businesses from potential financial troubles if they cause injury or damage to others. It covers things like legal defense costs, settlements, or judgments if you're found responsible for causing harm to someone else's body or property.

There are a few different types of liability insurance:

1. General liability insurance: This provides broad protection for businesses against claims related to bodily injury, property damage, or personal injury that happen because of their operations or premises.

2. Professional liability insurance (or errors and omissions insurance): This covers claims related to professional services or advice that cause financial loss for clients.

3. Product liability insurance: This shields manufacturers, distributors, and retailers from legal costs and damages if their products are defective and cause harm to consumers.

Having liability insurance is really important because it helps protect your assets and financial well-being if you accidentally cause harm to someone else. Without it, you could face serious financial losses from legal expenses, compensation payments, and damage to your reputation.

As for the cost, it varies depending on factors like the type and amount of coverage you need, the nature of your business or activities, and the level of risk involved. But overall, it's usually seen as affordable compared to the potential costs of not having coverage.

In auto insurance policies, liability coverage kicks in if you cause bodily injury or property damage in a car accident. In California, there are minimum coverage amounts required by law, like $5,000 for property damage, $15,000 for bodily injury per person, and $30,000 for bodily injury per accident. But it's smart to consider getting higher coverage limits to make sure you're fully protected in case of an accident.
