Why Liability Matters in a Premises Liability Case
As mentioned, perhaps the most complex aspects of a premises liability claim are proving liability. In the event you are injured on another person or business’s property, you must be able to prove that the property owner or manager knew about the potentially unsafe conditions yet failed to do anything about it. This is often easier said than done. To bring a claim against a negligent property owner, you must be able to prove the following:
- The at-fault party was in command of the property
- The property owner, or tenant, was negligent in the maintenance of the property
- The property owner’s negligence directly leads to your injury
