The term “premises liability” refers to the liability imposed upon property owners in the event a visitor sustains injury while on site. California law imposes a heightened requirement on shopkeepers to keep their aisles and walkways clear of hazards, both known and reasonably discoverable.
If a property owner is aware of a hazard (or should be aware of it), such as a spill or broken glass, he or she must either remedy the situation as quickly as possible or place clear signage around the hazard to warn consumers to be careful. If a property owner or employee skips these steps and a customer suffers injuries in an accident, such as a slip and fall, the property owner could be liable.
