Injured On Someone Else’s Property? Know Your Rights.
Although you may not have considered it, you likely spend a significant portion of your day on someone else’s property. Whether you are working from an office, shopping at a supermarket, walking through a park or climbing an apartment stairway, the space you occupy is frequently owned by a business, municipal authority or landlord other than yourself.
Under California law, owners and renters have a responsibility to prevent or control dangerous conditions on their property. When owners and renters act negligently by failing to care for their property in a reasonable manner, serious falls, collisions or collapses can occur – injuring customers, employees or other visitors.

Mr. Crissman’s personalized attention ensures his clients are supported and informed throughout the legal process.

Get A Direct Assessment Of Your Unique Situation
Slip-and-fall accidents are the most common form of premises liability claims. Premises claims can occur from a wide range of incidents. When a business, landlord or renter controls a property but does not adequately care for it, they can be held liable for resulting injuries. Premises liability claims can occur when someone falls or is otherwise harmed due to broken railings, uneven or collapsing walkways, uncovered swimming pools or slippery surfaces.
However, they can also stem from:
- Collapsing branches, ceilings or shelving
- Dog bites or other animal attacks
- Fires, floods or explosions
- Inadequate lighting or poor visibility
Thoroughly demonstrating that an owner or renter allowed an unreasonably dangerous condition to exist on their property is essential to advancing a premises liability claim. If you or your loved one has been seriously injured on someone else’s property, you should speak with a California personal injury attorney who can assess your unique situation and determine whether you are eligible for compensation.
Pursue Recovery With An Experienced Advocate
Seeking compensation is about far more than assigning responsibility for dangerous premises. Securing a financial award can help those injured by unsafe conditions cover the cost of medical bills, rehabilitative treatments or therapies, or wages lost due to an inability to work. Attorney Jeff Crissman works diligently to help Californians obtain this essential component of their recovery.
