In a premises liability case, the owner of the property (premises) can be held liable for injuries resulting from his or her negligence. However, proving negligence in a premises liability case can be challenging without the help and guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney who knows how to handle these cases effectively.
Whether the property is residential or commercial, the property owners must take reasonable precautions to protect the safety of guests and visitors from known hazards. If the owner’s negligence causes an accident to occur and a person suffers an injury as a result, the owner may be held liable for compensation to the victim.
Here are just some accidents that can lead to a personal injury claim and compensation:
In order to file a successful claim and recover damages, you must prove that the owner knowingly allowed the unsafe condition to persist. You must also show that your injuries occurred through no fault of your own.
