Premises liability is the legal term for the responsibility of a store owner, business person, commercial property owner or management of public space to reduce and eliminate known hazards and to keep visitors safe from injury. If you are injured in a retail store, grocery, casino, public building or even in a parking lot the owner or responsible agent for that property is not necessarily liable. California law provides property owners with a reasonable time to become aware of a hazard and remedy it.
For example, if a pickle jar is knocked off a grocery shelf by a customer and 30 seconds later a different customer slips on the fluid and suffers injury in the resulting fall it is not a valid premises liability case. The store is required to remove the hazard, but is provided a reasonable time to identify the situation and resolve it. However, if a customer in a grocery store slipped and injured themselves on that same pickle juice and store cameras and maintenance/inspection records showed the aisle had not been checked for over an hour there is a valid personal injury claim.
