Inadequate Outdoor Lighting
Inadequate lighting may also lead to accidents involving falls in parking lots, trips over curbing, falls on a step or stairs from a parking lot to a store, and trips and falls due to holes, cracks, and uneven surfaces. A California property owner/possessor may be liable if he or she knew or should have known of the poor lighting and failed to remedy the situation. The owner either knew about it, or should have known about it, and then did nothing to fix it or warn about the condition. This is the challenging part under California law.
