Sacramento Premises Liability Lawyer
When an accident or injury occurs to a visitor or tenant living on someone's property, the property owner may be liable for their negligence, leading to the victim's injury. This is what is typically referred to as premises liability.
If you have suffered an injury of this type and you believe it's the result of negligence by another person or business, you may be able to file a lawsuit to recover the costs involved to pay for your damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, emotional distress, pain and suffering, disfigurement, or physical disability.

In premises liability cases, you must prove that the property owner either failed to maintain the property or created unsafe conditions that caused the injury. They knew about the hazard but did not warn tenants or visitors. It must also prove that the property owner was careless about the unsafe conditions that caused damage to someone else's property.
