Premises liability claims arise from dangerous properties. Property owners have a responsibility to maintain a safe environment for patrons or visitor to prevent injuries on their property. One of the most common causes of such injuries is a trip or slip and fall, such as on an icy sidewalk, a loose or uneven stair tread, or a piece of debris or spilled liquid on the floor. Property owner liability varies depending on the rules and principles adopted in the jurisdiction where the injury occurred. An experienced injury lawyer at Clore Law Group will evaluate the strength of your premises liability claim and help you recover damages for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
Proving Owners’ Liability in Premises Liability Cases
In proving a premises liability case, an injured person must show that the standard of reasonableness required by an owner has not been met. Perhaps the most difficult element an injured person must prove is the owner’s knowledge of the condition causing his or her injury. The injured person must prove that the owner knew or should have known the condition in order for liability to attach, which is often quite often difficult to establish.
Even common accidents such as slips and falls can present complex legal issues and complicated questions of both fact and law. Accordingly, if you have been injured on someone’s dangerous property contact an experienced and knowledgeable attorney at Clore Law Group to discuss your situation and learn your legal options.
Premises Liability Law Suits
Who can be held responsible for their dangerous property? Homeowners, business owners, renters and even landlords can be held responsible for the condition of their properties. Often, the greater question is whether we can collect against the responsible party. The majority of property owners have insurance, which means they should have coverage for the claim. Unfortunately, the coverage may not be sufficient or the policy may have expired. These are just a few examples of why you need an attorney experienced in premises liability lawsuits.
