Proof in a Premises Liability Case

Breaking down every step of the Premises Liability Process

What do I need to prove to win my premises liability case?

In order to win your premises liability case, you must prove that your injury was caused by a condition on the property. This includes, but is not limited to, a slippery floor, a missing handrail, a broken step, or any other dangerous condition. You must also prove that the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition and failed to correct it.

There are a number of ways you could prove this. For example, if you slipped on a wet floor, you would need to show that the floor was wet at the time of your fall. If you tripped over a loose rug, you would need to prove that the rug had been there for a while, and that the rug was not properly secured.

Filing a premises liability lawsuit

The DOJ reported that approximately 4 billion dollars are awarded to compensate premises liability injury victims each year. The most common types of premises liability lawsuits are those filed on behalf of children, trespassers, and visitors. If a child is injured on someone else’s property, for example, the owner may be sued for failing to provide safe conditions for children. If a person is injured on someone else’s property and they are not a trespasser, the owner may be sued for failing to provide adequate warning of dangerous conditions. If someone is injured on someone else’s property and they are a trespasser, the owner may be sued for failing to provide adequate warning of dangerous conditions.

Finding the best premises liability lawyer

It’s not an easy task to find the best premises liability lawyer. You may be tempted to go with the first law firm you see or the first billboard you pass, but that might not be the best decision.

The lawyer should be experienced, knowledgeable, and honest. You want someone who will be there for you every step of the way. Whichever online or offline source of knowledge you’re using to gather information about prospective lawyers, make sure that it’s trustworthy and reliable.
