Every year in San Diego, hundreds of people are injured on an unsafe property with dangerous conditions. In many cases, these accidents were avoidable. Any area that is open to customers, vendors, guests, and children are required to be properly maintained so that everyone can be safe from injuries due to an accident.
But many of these so-called accidents result from the negligence of person or an entity that failed to follow the law that protects visitors. These laws are in place to protect she safety of the public. When those parties fail to accept responsibility from their negligence that results in injuries, a lawsuit may become necessary.
Property owners and landowners in California have a duty of care to keep their properties, facilities, and buildings in reasonably safe condition. When they fail to uphold that duty of care, and someone is hurt, they may be faced with liability and a lawsuit that awards damages to the injured party.
When someone has an accident on public or private property, or a residence, they are subject to laws known as premises liability. These are the laws that govern the handling and care of facilities open to the public.
Typically, a premises liability case is when someone is harmed on another’s property because the owner, manager, or occupier either failed to maintain or neglected to repair anyplace where people visit such as:
Those responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of these places have a duty of care to make sure that the facilities are always safe for visitors, vendors, employees, and anyone else who visits. That duty of care involves:

To prevent slips or put out safety signage so that Visitors know to be careful and avoid the area. If they fail to do so, the negligence may lead to injuries, and eventually, liability.
Unsafe conditions can cause serious, painful, and debilitating injuries. Most people think of premises liability accidents as a slip and fall. The truth is, there are a number of ways someone can be hurt on a property due to negligence, such as:

Because women are more detail oriented, a female attorney tends to be over-prepared for court. Women also tend to be more empathetic than most male attorneys. And women tend to be the majority on juries, so a female attorney is more likely to be considered trustworthy and credible. Women also win more cases in court.
Understandably, many women who have experienced a personal injury prefer to speak with a female attorney about their injuries.
