What Is Considered Premises Liability?
The property owner's negligence may have contributed to your injuries. In these situations, you may be able to file a premises liability claim. In this type of personal injury lawsuit, you would be able to hold the property owner liable for your injuries and losses. You would be able to recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering.
To prove liability in a premises liability claim, you would need to show:
- The property owner owed you a duty of care
- The property owner breached their duty of care
- The breach of duty caused your injuries
- You were injured on the property owner's property
- You were using the property in a reasonably foreseeable manner
For example, if you were injured on a slip-and-fall on a store's floor, the store would have a duty of care to keep the floor reasonably safe and clean. If the store did not clean the floor or did not clean it often enough, they would have breached their duty of care. If you slipped and fell because of a wet floor, the store would have breached their duty of care. The breach of duty would have caused your injuries.
