When you’ve sustained a serious injury, one of the most important things you can do afterward is to consider how your accident was caused. In many cases, the responsibility for your injury may fall with the property owner or manager, in which case you may need to file a premises liability case. If you fell, tripped, or were struck by a fallen object while on someone else’s property, that property owner might be liable. Property owners are responsible for maintaining safe environments for guests and visitors, which is why they can, in turn, be held accountable for any injuries that take place on their property.
If you were harmed on someone else’s property due to their carelessness or mistake, make sure you talk to our Bakersfield attorneys about your potential premises liability case. We can work with you to gather necessary evidence, build a case, and seek maximum compensation from the liable party. We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation on behalf of our clients and we don’t shy away from difficult or challenging cases. If you need legal help after an injury, we are prepared to build a case in your favor to protect your interests.
What is Premises Liability?
In the state of California, property owners are required to keep their homes and businesses safe and well maintained. If a property owner fails to maintain their property, or if they have dangerous hazards that lack proper warning signs or barriers, that owner could be held responsible for any injuries or damages that occur as a result of their negligence. Premises liability cases can cover a variety of visitors, including customers who visit stores, home service professionals who visit homes, guests in private residences, and so on.
Common types of premises liability cases include:
- Amusement park accidents
- Assaults and attacks
- Construction site accidents
- Dog bites
- Inadequate security
- Municipal liability
- Negligent security
- Restaurant liability
- Retail store negligence
- School ground accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Trip and fall accidents
Swimming Pool Liability in Bakersfield
In Bakersfield, a substantial number of homeowners own pools, and therefore could be responsible for premises liability cases involving injuries within their own backyards. Swimming pool incidents are extremely dangerous and can result in serious, often life-threatening and fatal, injuries. For that reason, homeowners must be careful to build fences and locking gates around their pools to protect neighbors, visitors, or potential trespassers, especially children. If a pool owner fails to secure their pool, visitors or wandering children could become injured or drown. If you were injured in a swimming pool accident, our firm may be able to help you secure compensation from the pool owner or another liable party.
