Injuries on Property


Landowners are responsible for people's injuries that are caused by a lack of ordinary care or skill in the management of their property. (California Civil Code section 1714(a)). A landowner's liability for someone's injuries is governed by general negligence principles. (Rowland v Christian (1968) 69 Cal.2d 108, 118; Pineda v Ennabe (1998) 61 Cal.App.4th 1403, 1407). If you have been injured on another's property due to any dangerous condition, you may have a legal right to recover money for your medical bills and pain and suffering.
