Premises liability laws hold business owners liable for any injuries that occur on their property. If you’ve slipped or tripped and fallen at a place of business that is the result of a safety hazard or inadequate security, that business can be held liable for your injury, including medical bills and other damages. Though these cases are extremely common, they can actually be very complex and fact-specific, with little room to budge. For a court to even recognize a liable party in a premises liability case, there are four things the injured party must prove.
All business owners owe a duty of care to their customers. Business’ specifically invite people in to spend money, therefore it is their responsibility to provide a safe environment.
The property owner had to be aware of the dangerous property condition, or the injured must prove that they should have been aware of the condition, and failed to prevent it or rectify it prior to the incident.
The dangerous condition of the business had to be the direct cause of the injury in question.
The injured must prove that injuries were suffered as a result of the aforementioned elements.
