How to Prove Negligence in a Premise Liability Claim

In California, in order to win a case involving injuries on someone else’s property, the injured person needs to prove four things:

1) The property owner had control over the property

2) The owner was negligent in how they maintained or used the property

3) The injured person was actually harmed,

4) The owner’s negligence was a significant factor in causing that harm. 

To prove negligence, the injured person must show that the property owner didn’t keep their property reasonably safe or warn people about known dangers. In addition, substantial evidence plays a crucial role in proving this negligence.
