Riverside Premises Liability Lawyer

A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Determine Liability

Riverside County occupies over 7,303 square miles and holds over 2.423 million people. We at West Coast Trial Lawyers understand that when a large amount of people occupy a small amount of land, the potential for legal issues will inevitably arise. When it comes to property and land, Riverside county laws can be a little confusing.

For example, Riverside law dictates the amount of separate dwellings on a single property by limiting construction to two structures. If you were injured on someone else’s property due to their negligence, you may have a premises liability lawsuit. Contact the expert attorneys at West Coast Trial Lawyers for a free consultation. We are always here to discuss any questions you may have about premises liability claims and available damages.

Introduction To California Premises Liability Law

California law mandates that all property owners must maintain a reasonably safe environment for those who enter their property. The law separates people who enter a property into three categories: Invitees, Licenesses, and Trespassers. 

According to Riverside premises liability law, a property manager owes each type of visitor a certain level of responsibility, which is known as a “duty of care.” With reference to premises liability, the legal term “duty of care” is defined as the requirement that a property owner has to keep their property safe under reasonable and foreseeable circumstances

If a property owner fails to complete his or her due diligence and someone is injured as a result, then their actions could be considered negligent, thereby opening them up to a premises liability lawsuit. Listed below are legal terms for the three types of visitors and what level of care is legally owned to them:

Invitee. A property owner owes the highest duty of care to an invitee. An invitee is someone who has been legally welcomed into the home or property by the owner as an accepted guest. Examples of invitees are:

  1. A guest at a restaurant or hotel 
  2. Grocery store shopper 
  3. Retail store customer 
  4. Office client 
  5. Friends or family

Licensees.The law states that a property owner also has a duty of care to licensees. Licensees are invited by the owner. A simple verbal invitation, a contract, or any other form of acknowledgement will legally define this visitor as a licensee, and the property owner must ensure a safe environment. Examples of licensees include: 

  1. A babysitter, repairman or woman, butler, maid, or gardener
  2. A verbally invited friend 
  3. A party guest 
  4. A delivery person

Trespasser. As most can deduce, a trespasser is someone who does not have permission to enter the property, but does so anyway. Surprisingly, the law does bound a property owner to a certain level of duty for trespassers as well. A homeowner can not legally prepare traps or pitfalls on their property, nor can they ignore the possible presence of tresspers.

For example, if a property owner has prior knowledge of neighborhood children entering the yard, the owner must exercise a duty not only to keep them out, but also warn them of potential dangers, such as by placing “dangerous dog” or “caution: do not enter” signs. 

Examples of trespassers include:
  1. Thieves 
  2. Drunken explorers 
  3. Curious children 
California trespassing laws. It is important to mention that laws are set in place to protect innocent trespassers, such as children who are chasing a baseball or any other type of scenario where children can be harmed. California trespass laws fine those who trespass $75 for a first offense, $250 for a second offense and the third offense will likely result in a misdemeanor.
