What to Know About California’s Premises Liability Laws
A business or property owner is not automatically responsible for an accident that happens on their premises. As explained within the California Civil Jury Instructions (2020 edition), a defendant in a premises liability claim will only be held legally liable if the plaintiff can prove the following:
- The defendant was in control of the premises at the time of the incident;
- The defendant was, in some manner, negligent in the maintenance of the property;
- The plaintiff suffered actual harm while on the property; and
- The defendant’s negligence was a substantial factor in causing the plaintiff’s injuries.
How Much Compensation Can Be Recovered in a Premises Liability Claim?

The amount of compensation that can be recovered by an injured victim will depend on a wide range of different factors, including their ability to prove fault and the severity of their injuries.
