What Is Premises Liability?
Premises liability is a part of the law that is often used in personal injury cases. If a person’s injury was caused by an unsafe condition or a defective condition on another person’s property, then the negligent party can be held liable for damages under the premises liability concept.
The majority of personal injury cases happen because a person was negligent or careless, and the same idea applies to the legal concept of premises liability. The injured party in a premises liability case has to prove that the private property owner was negligent regarding the maintenance or safety of the property.
What Does Negligence of Property Mean?
Negligence in premises liability cases is when the property owner failed to care for the property reasonably. For example, this could include things like failing to install handrails or fix faulty handrails, resulting in visitor injury.
However, it’s critical to understand that getting injured on another person’s property does not always mean the owner was negligent. You have to prove that the property owner knew the premises were in an unsafe condition or that they should have reasonably known the property was dangerous for other people.
