Premises liability in the Bay Area
Under California law, a person who owns, leases, occupies or controls a property has a duty to use reasonable care to discover any unsafe conditions and to repair defects or, if a defect cannot be remedied, to give adequate warning of known dangers that could be reasonably expected to harm others. A property owner or other person in control of a property, such as a business or a property manager, may be found negligent and held liable for resulting injuries and damages if the party fails to use reasonable care to keep the property in reasonably safe condition.
