Hazardous conditions after a summer storm and premises liability

Premises liability cases can be difficult for victims to prove when things aren't so cut and dry. But, in many cases, it's very easy to prove fault in a premises liability case. Many property owners don't realize that they can be held liable if a person is injured on their property following a storm.

With the summer weather in full swing, storms will be rolling through California on a regular basis. Even though the winter weather is not overwhelming in this area, the summer weather can wreak havoc on the area. When it does decide to rain, torrential rain can lead to property issues such as soft ground, uprooted trees, holes and many other problems.

Should high winds leave damage on a person's property, they are required to clean up said damage within a reasonable amount of time. For example, the damage is not expected to be cleaned up while the storm is still occurring. The clock does not begin to tick until once the storm clears.

Any damage to property from a storm that is not cleaned up within a reasonable time can lead to injuries and eventually premises liability cases. No one wants to be straddled with such a case, but it happens. Property damage caused by summer storms can lead to any of the following injuries if not rectified:

- Trip and fall injuries

- Head injuries

- Broken or sprained bones

- Electrocution

- Death

If you are injured on someone else's property following a summer storm, you will need to prove the owner was negligent in cleaning up the damage after the storm. This could be difficult, which is why you should work with an experienced premises liability attorney.

If you or a loved one has been injured on someone else's property following a summer storm, it's imperative that you speak with our firm in Pomona, California, to discuss your premises liability case and find out how you can obtain compensation for your injuries.
