When someone is injured or hurt on someone else’s property as a result of a dangerous or defective condition, then the victim is entitled to a premises liability case. In order to avoid premises liability cases, especially slip and fall accidents, business owners are required to keep their premises safe and secure for the public.
Premises liability victims can get in touch with an experienced personal injury attorney, if they have been injured in a store, office, or a public or private property. The burden of proof in premises liability cases is on the injured victim. The victim has to prove that there was a dangerous condition on the property which was not anticipated by the victim and resulted in the injury. The property owner should have known about the dangerous condition, and should have corrected it.
In most premises liability cases, proving fault of the property owner is the toughest. Apart from being difficult to prove the case, there are victims who are not even aware that they may have a premises liability claim if they are injured on someone else’s property. They are also not aware that the property owner is automatically responsible for the injury that was caused on their property. A lot of insurance companies try to shift the blame on the victim from the property owner which is a setback for most victims.
It is crucial for the victim of a premises liability accident to report the incident to the property owner or manager immediately after the accident. This will ensure that the dangerous condition that caused the accident was documented and any evidence may be preserved. Moreover, the property owner will be able to take steps to rectify the dangerous condition and prevent accidents in the future.
