A deadly explosion at a California commercial building has left one person dead and severely injured at least two others.
The explosion made a large hole in the building’s roof, and firefighters immediately evacuated the surrounding area.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation. Although it is unknown what caused the explosion, when significant injuries and fatalities occur on anther’s property many questions are raised about the safety of the premises.
Generally, the owner or operator of a premises – such as a store, a building, a park or even a home – has a duty to keep the property reasonably safe and to provide warnings of dangerous conditions he knows of or should have been aware of.
Where the owner knows about a dangerous condition, but fails to provide any warning, he may be responsible for any injuries that occur on the premises – including medical costs, lost wages and pain and suffering.
