Whether shopping at a popular retail establishment or visiting another person's home, each and every person in California has the right to expect that a property has been properly maintained. This might seem obvious to some, but many property owners fail to adequately address dangers or warn visitors of potential hazards, putting some at risk of serious injury or even death. Injuries caused by slip-and-fall accidents, dog bites or any other number of hazardous conditions can all be justly compensated through premises liability claims.
