Premises Liability

Hurt on Someone’s Property? You Need a San Luis Obispo Premises Liability Attorney


Experience You Can Trust

The law requires property owners and occupants to keep their premises in a safe condition. However, if they fail to properly maintain the property or dwelling, they could be in breach of duty, which means they may be responsible for any injuries that occur due to unsafe or hazardous conditions.

Earl E. Conaway, III, A Professional Law Corporation, has more than a decade of experience handling difficult premises liability cases. If you or a loved one has been injured on unsafe premises, a San Luis Obispo premises liability attorney can help you receive compensation for medical bills, lost income and other damages you incurred due to your accident

Accidents Handled by Our San Luis Obispo Premises Liability Attorney

Each premises liability case is unique, and there are nearly limitless scenarios that can lead to premises injuries. Some common premises liability claim examples are as follows:

  • Pet and animal attacks
  • Trip accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Swimming pool injuries
  • Negligent security
  • Broken glass injuries
  • Amusement park injuries
  • Farming injuries
  • Residential home injuries
  • Mall injuries
  • Theater injuries
  • Apartment complex negligence

Common Examples of Premises Liability Negligence

Anyone who owns, possesses or controls a property has a duty to keep the premises in a reasonably safe condition. If the owner or person in control of the property fails to warn people or repair a dangerous condition, the courts may find them in breach of a duty of care, which is known as “negligence.”

These are common examples of premises liability negligence:

  • Failing to clean up a spilled liquid
  • Leaving debris in walkways
  • Not drying floor surfaces
  • Failure to repair holes on the property
  • Not abiding by building codes
  • Insufficient lighting in stairwells
  • Not fixing torn or pulled carpet
  • Not performing necessary building maintenance

Our personal injury team will thoroughly investigate your liability case, gathering all of the available evidence that we can use to support your claim for a settlement or jury trial. Evidence may include:

If you are the victim of a premises liability claim, it is essential that you contact an attorney immediately. If you wait too long, evidence will disappear. For example, camera footage may be erased, or the responsible party may repair the unsafe condition that caused your injuries. Without documentation, your liability claim will be even more challenging to prove.
