Fatal Premises Accidents in California

People across California go to the homes and businesses of others every day. Whether someone goes to buy groceries, visit a friend, or work, they expect to be able to engage in their activities without any issues. Although this is a reasonable expectation, it does not always happen. Instead, numerous people are forced to deal with overwhelming pain and suffering as a result of injuries. In worse cases, victims end up losing their lives due to the negligence of others.

In California, property owners are required to offer property that is safe for them to use. This includes exercising reasonable care to maintain the property, repair any dangerous conditions, give warning that dangerous conditions exist, and inspect the property routinely to ensure it is safe. When property owners fail to engage in these responsible actions, they can be held liable for resulting injuries and damages. Unfortunately, thousands of people lose their lives each year as a result of negligent property owners. In some cases, surviving relatives can reach out to a wrongful death attorney in California to protect their legal rights and get the justice they deserve.
