Negligence can take many forms, but generally, it is defined as the failure to act as a reasonable person would act in the same situation. There are three types of negligence that can lead to a legitimate premises liability claim:
- Failure to maintain the property and keep it free from foreseeable risks of harm
- Failure to warn of hidden dangers or known risks
- Failure to take appropriate precautions to guard against foreseeable risks of harm
f there is evidence of negligence, then the property owner may be held liable for damages and will be required to pay to compensate for the damages incurred..
