Proving a Premises Liability Claim
In order to prove a premises liability claim, it must be shown that the property owner knew, or should have known, of a dangerous condition in their property. These dangerous conditions can include:
- Negligent security
- Inadequate lighting
- Falling debris or debris that is left in an aisle
- Inadequate supervision or help for consumers
- Elevator, escalator and stairway problems
Secondly, it must be shown that the property owner did not take proper care to either warn those of the dangerous condition, or to take steps to remove the dangerous condition. Lastly, it must be shown that the dangerous condition was the cause of the injury, and that the injury resulted in damages. Our lawyers will take every step to investigate the circumstances of the accident.
