Business and property owners have a responsibility to provide a reasonably safe environment for anyone that enters their property. This is the law, and falls under premises liability. Negligence on the business or property owner’s part may lead to slips or falls that cause painful personal injury.
Unfortunately, most people injured on someone else’ premises don’t know their rights. That’s why it’s imperative to contact the our Law Firm to ensure that your rights are honored. We know what it takes to prove premises liability and can help you assess whether or not you have a case.
Premises Liability Cases
There are three types of common premises liability cases: Slip, trips, and falls; and negligent security. Negligent security is when someone is allowed to enter a property and they assault another occupant. Negligent security may include any of the following:
- Shopping Malls
- Amusement Parks
- Concerts and Festivals
- Sporting Events
If you’ve been attacked or injured at any of these venues, you may have a premises liability case. If you’ve suffered a life altering injury that requires extensive medical treatment and therapy, you’ll need compensation to ensure your medical costs are covered. However, premises liability cases are not necessarily easy to prove.
Proving Premises Liability
It is the responsibility of the injured party to prove one of the following:
- The property owner caused the dangerous environment.
- The property owner knew about the dangerous environment but did not correct it.
- The property owner should have known about the dangerous environment because it was obvious to any reasonable person.
