Carlsbad Premises Liability Lawyer
Business and house guests have a reasonable expectation that they will not be injured by a hidden danger when they are on another’s property. Under the law all property owners owe their guests a basic duty to keep the property in a reasonably safe condition and warn them about any potentially dangerous conditions. In some circumstances the owner has a heightened obligation to take reasonable steps to actively check and ensure that there are no hidden risks on their property. When the property owner fails in this duty they may be held liable for the injuries that results.
Many Carlsbad, California residents are injured each year while they are on property owned by others, such as while shopping at a store or in an apartment building. Frequently those injuries would have been prevented if the individual or business in charge of the location had taken reasonable steps to warn the guest of a hidden danger or conducted reasonable inspections to make sure that the place was safe. Property owners who fail in their duty often cause guests to suffer a range of injuries. Some of the more common types of accidents that result include:
- Swimming pool drownings caused by dangerous water conditions
- Exposure to toxic or hazardous substances, like mold or lead
- Dog bites on another’s property
- Fire injuries caused by owners keeping their premises in unsafe conditions
- Slip and fall accidents
