What is Premises Liability Law?

Premises liability law entails a business owner or property owner’s legal responsibility to care and maintain a reasonably safe environment of their property. If they do not , they can be held responsible for accident victims who injure themselves on their Los Angeles premises. The property owner can be subjected to premises liability claims brought upon them by a Los Angeles premises liability lawyer.

By law, property owners in California must exercise reasonable care of their premises and maintain its safety to reduce the chance of it having a dangerous condition. The degree of care that a responsible property owner should execute is the same they should execute when thinking about premises where they would feel comfortable living or working. If a landlord, property management company, or property owner fails in keeping their property safe, he or she can be held liable for common accidents and any premises liability cases that may arise from the unsafe condition of the premises.
