If you happen to be in a situation where you hold someone accountable for premises liability, it is crucial to prove that a specific person was responsible for the damages you have endured. Like most personal injury cases, there are factors that you should establish. Below are for factors that can help you throughout the process:
A Legal Duty of Care
Property owners or managers have legal duties and responsibilities to keep anyone that enters their property safe. Thus, if the property owner or manager sees – or should have seen – a potentially unsafe situation or a hazard, they must take immediate action to address any issue. This is their duty of care.
The Property Owner Breached a Duty of Care
You must be able to show that the property owner or manager breached their duty of care, whether intentionally or unintentionally. This means that the property owner had either created the danger that resulted in your injury or seen an unsafe situation and did address the issue.
An Accident Occurred Because of Negligence
You must demonstrate that a property danger or act of negligence caused an incident, such as a trip or fall, or any other problem. If another visitor on the premises is responsible for the occurrence, liability concerns can arise. Instead of the property owner, the specific person would be held accountable.
The Plaintiff Suffered an Injury
You must establish that you were injured as a result of the incident in order to receive compensation. In a premises liability case, compensation would cover any losses you incur, such as medical expenses, lost income, and more.
