In most states, premises liability laws require property owners to take reasonable care in maintaining their properties and state that they can be held responsible for any injuries that occur as a result of their negligence.
Premises liability is often involved in personal injury lawsuits. If the conditions that caused your injury were the direct result of the property owner's failure to upkeep the property, then the owner can be held liable.
Most states legally require property owners to maintain their properties for the safety of any who might enter. People visiting a property are divided into three categories:
Not all injuries occurring on another’s property are the result of negligence. Even if a property has been deemed unsafe, the burden of proof lies upon the plaintiff to prove that these conditions directly caused the injury. The plaintiff must provide evidence that the property owner knew that unsafe conditions were present and failed to take measures to correct and improve the property.
If you or a loved one has been injured on another person’s property due to its poor or dangerous conditions, you may be entitled to file a claim.
