Ventura Slip & Fall Accident Lawyer

What is Premise Liability?

Slip and fall accidents caused by another party’s negligence fall under the legal concept called “premises liability.” Under this concept, property owners owe a reasonable duty of care to those who visit their premises. This duty of care involves providing a relatively safe environment for visitors, clients, customers, patrons, tenants, service people, and any others who have a legal right to be there. Should the property owner be derelict in this duty, ignoring or failing to repair obvious safety hazards, they may be held responsible for the damages incurred by anyone suffering an accident on the property related to the negligent condition.

The most common example of premises liability is the slip and fall accident. While these are more prevalent in icy conditions where stairs, sidewalks, pathways, and other spaces can become dangerously slippery, slip and fall incidents can also occur in Southern California. These accidents can happen in numerous locations and when they are caused by negligent property conditions, you have the right to pursue compensation under California premises liability law. Should this happen to you in or around the Ventura area, you can seek experienced and dedicated legal help from the Law Office of Ruben M. Ruiz.

When they fail to do so, they may be held liable.
