What Is Premises Liability?
Premises liability refers to the area of personal injury law involving cases that arise when a person is hurt by a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. To recover compensation in a premises liability claim, you must show that the property owner was responsible for creating the unsafe or defective condition. It also might be necessary to establish the condition existed long enough that the owner had reasonable opportunity to either fix the situation or warn you of its presence.
To recover compensation, you will also need to show that you suffered injury and loss due to the accident.
