Residential and commercial property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe for visitors, but slip and fall accidents remain common and can cause painful injuries.
Under California law, a person who is injured due to an owner’s negligent management of his or her property may be entitled to compensatory damages. However, determining negligence depends on certain circumstances, including the duty the owner owes visitors to ensure their safety. A lawyer explains how this duty can shift with the context of the situation, please refer below to a case won for our client.
