Premises liability is an area of civil tort law that holds commercial and private property owners liable for a spinal cord injury, brain injury, burn injury, or other injury that occurs on their property as a result of their negligence. Although proving negligence can sometimes be difficult, California has strict legislation when it comes to slip-and-fall and other accident claims involving premises liability.

This logic applies to the victim, as well. For example, a “reasonable” person would not wander onto a construction site or fail to spot an obvious spill in the middle of a grocery store. As one can imagine, the lines are often blurry when it comes to determining responsibility.
