How can I make my property safe for trick-or-treaters?
It is important to ensure that your property is safe for trick-or-treaters this Halloween. To do so, you must ensure that the steps leading up to your front door are not defective and are completely functional. You should also ensure that your steps, walkways, and porch are well-lit without any safety hazards and that any decorations are placed carefully to ensure no one slips or trips on them.
What should I do if my child gets hurt on someone else’s property?
You may have a valid premises liability claim if you or your child has been injured on another person’s property due to negligence this Halloween. In order to prove your claim, it is important to begin gathering evidence as soon as possible. Such evidence should include photos of the safety hazards that led to your accident, the contact information of any witnesses, the police report, and medical documents from your medical treatment. It is also important to retain the services of an experienced personal injury attorney who will work to satisfy the burden of proof to recover the compensation you require to heal.
What is the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in California?
The statute of limitations for premises liability claims in California is generally two years. This means that you will have two years from the date of your or your child’s accident on Halloween to take legal action against the negligent property owner. It is best to bring attention to your claim as soon as possible. Failure to file your claim may result in you being permanently time-barred from taking legal action.
