San Bernardino Premises Liability
Premises liability can be challenging. The concept is rooted in the inherent responsibility of a property owner to maintain a safe environment for visitors. However, the term “safe environment” may be applied differently to unalike properties. What is considered safe for a farm may not be safe for a grocery store. In addition, a property owner’s responsibility, or duty of care, to visitors is dependent on the level of permission they have to be on the property. An expressly invited friend to dinner may deserve a higher duty of care than an uninvited solicitor or trespasser.

The Importance of Hiring a Premises Liability Attorney
The complexity of premises liability cases requires a high degree of knowledge and expertise. Often, claims come down to a specific understanding of minute details; how the fine points of the law apply to this particular set of circumstances.
Your premises liability attorney will need to prove four factors for a successful claim.
- The defendant is legally bound to the property
- The defendant acted with negligence
- The plaintiff was injured
- The defendant’s negligent actions caused the injury to the plaintiff
Defining Premises Liability Law in San Bernardino
Premises liability is based on the concept of negligence. The owner, lessee, or operator of a property must be found to have acted negligently.
For example, suppose you invite a friend over to your home for dinner. As your friend sits, the chair crumples to the ground and they fall, fracturing their tail bone. Does your friend have a case?
- If you were aware the chair had damage and chose not to fix the chair within a reasonable time frame and chose not to tell your friend about the potential hazard, you are a negligent host and your friend may have a case.
- If you were not aware of any damage to the chair but probably should have known, you have acted negligently and your friend may have a case.
- If you did not know of any damage to the chair and it would not be reasonable that you knew of any damage, you have not acted negligently. Your friend may not have a case.
