Proving Negligence in a Premises Liability Case
The validity of your premises liability case will be contingent on proving that the owner or manager was negligent in their efforts to maintain the property. You must establish that they knew, or should have known about the dangerous condition, but failed to repair it or post a warning sign to keep people safe. You must also prove that the dangerous condition caused your injuries
Who is Responsible for My Premises Liability Injury?
The person responsible for the premises liability injury will be whoever is directly responsible for caring for the property on which the injury happened. This could be the property owner, a landlord, a property manager, or a tenant.
If you are injured in a park or on government-owned property, you may be able to sue the government for damages.
What If the Victim Was Not on the Property Legally?
To become compensated for a premises liability accident, you must have been on the property legally. If you were trespassing, you may not be able to recoup any damages. Very limited exceptions may apply.
