Proving Property Owner Negligence
A property owner can be held liable for your injuries if he or she failed to maintain a safe environment or warn of a dangerous condition that existed on the property. Although proving property owner can be complicated, we utilize leading experts in construction, engineering, and more to help us investigate and corroborate your claim. The elements of a premise liability case will vary from state to state, so it is important to check the laws of your jurisdiction.
One of the biggest challenges in premises liability cases is proving liability for the injuries sustained. There are many factors of proving liability but generally, the injured party will have to prove:
- that the person whose actions led to the injury (the defendant) owned, leased or occupied the property
- that the defendant was negligent in their use or treatment of the property
- that this negligent behavior was a substantial factor in causing the injuries sustained
