How to Determine Liability in Your Premises Liability Case
If you were injured on someone else’s property—be it a restaurant, hotel, apartment complex, nightclub, parking lot, or shopping mall—you may be entitled to damages. In order to file a successful personal injury claim, however, you will need to prove that the property owner was negligent, or that they violated their duty of care. In order to do so, you and your lawyer will need to establish the following:
- The property owner knew about a potential hazard: You must be able to prove that the property owner or an employer caused, knew about, or should have known about the hazardous conditions.
- The property owner failed to remove the hazard: You must then be able to show that the property owner and/or an employee failed to neutralize the hazard in a reasonably prudent manner.
- The property owner’s negligence caused you harm: Next, you must be able to show that there is a direct correlation between the property owner’s negligence and the cause of your accident.
- You suffered damages as a result of the accident: Finally, you will need to establish that you have suffered actual damages as a result of the accident, such as medical expenses or a loss of income.
