POTENTIAL DEFENDANTS: Who are all potential parties in a California slip and fall lawsuit?

In California slip and fall cases, there are often a number of people or entities that may be held legally responsible for someone's injuries. For instance, if a business rents space from a property owner, both the property owner and the tenant (the business) may be named as defendants in a California law suit by someone injured on the property.  There has to be a reason why the person was injured and this reason must be related to the persons being sued. In that case, the tenant is known as a possessor of the property, and has a duty to use reasonable care to prevent injury to those on the premises under its control. A possessor might also be a party who manages or maintains the property, such as a management company.
