Fighting for you when you’re injured
When you walk into a business, you don’t expect to get hurt. However people are injured every day because of slippery floors, poor lighting and other unsafe conditions. When you are injured by the negligence of a property owner, you may hold the person responsible for your injuries under the concept of premises liability. If you have been injured, we can help you recover compensation for your injuries.
Explaining premises liability
A property owner has a legal duty to use reasonable care to keep the property in a safe condition. A grocery store reasonably must inspect the store to make sure that there are no conditions that might lead to liquid on the floor or cause a display to fall over, for example. Premises liability cases include the following:
Who is responsible for my injury?
Owners, tenants and contractors may be held responsible, depending on who has the right to control the property at the time of the accident. Just identifying the proper defendant can often be a difficult task because simply owning the property does not necessarily create liability. Determining who is liable means discovering who had a duty to keep the premises maintained to ensure the safety of visitors.
Owners are only negligent if they failed to use reasonable care to keep the premises in a reasonably safe condition. You also have a duty to exercise reasonable care to avoid obviously unsafe conditions. A jury may consider whether the owner was aware, or should have been aware, of the unsafe conditions.
