Proving Premises Liability
With lawsuits, certain conditions are necessary to prove negligence. A key consideration is premises liability. This means the property owner failed to take reasonable care of the property, and therefore this negligence caused your injury.
An injury itself does not establish liability. Extenuating factors may include the length of time a dangerous condition has existed and the responsibility for the property owner to take corrective measures. To prove this in court, you need the guidance of a capable slip-and-fall accident attorney. One of our lawyers can look at the circumstances of your case and see if premises liability exists. If so, he can then develop a strong case for settlement or litigation.
