All property owners are required under premises liability laws to keep their property safe. If they fail to do so, people could get hurt. The personal injury attorneys at Giroux Pappas Trial Attorneys know that when a property owner fails their duty of care, they’re the ones that should pay, not you.
There are two basic rules to determine fault in a premises accident. First, the owner has a duty to anyone who enters the property to keep the property safe. Second, those who visit the property must use the property normally and safely.
In order to prove liability in a case like this, your attorney must prove:
- That the owner had a legal responsibility to keep the property safe for use
- That legal responsibility extended to you, the plaintiff/injured party
- The owner failed that responsibility, resulting in your injuries
The most common premises liability claims include things like:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Trip and fall accidents
- Dog bite accidents
- Falls from heights
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
