An unsafe property can be a scary and dangerous place. Building owners are required to keep their property safe for residents, employees, and others. Unmarked hazards, falling debris, dangerous ice, or unsound structures all turn a building into a potential accident site. If someone is injured as a result of unsafe property or building conditions, the injured party may have a right to compensatory damages. To seek such damages, a qualified, experienced Los Angeles attorney is essential.
Many states require landowners to protect an entrant on their land. An entrant could be a trespasser, licensee, or an invitee, and the landowner duties vary depending on the type of entrant. Obviously, a landowner has less of a duty to protect a trespasser than other types of entrants. The highest duty of care that the landowner is liable for is business invitees. Recently, several states have discontinued these multiple classifications in favor of one standard of “reasonableness under circumstances” which makes a reasonable judgment depending on the situation.
