Premises Liability Claims Require Proving Negligence
All premises liability claims hinge on negligence, i.e., the owner acted in a negligent or careless manner. More specifically, four elements must be present in order to substantiate a premises liability claim:
- Duty of Care – The owner must owe you a duty of care. Businesses owe their patrons a duty of care, just as homeowners owe guests a duty of care. This element may not be hard to prove, provided you were on the property legally.
- Breach of Duty – Next, you must be able to show that the owner acted in a way that breached that duty of care. The owner must have neglected his or her duty to provide reasonably safe premises. Essentially, this means the property owner or manager was aware of a hazard (or should have been aware of it) and did not correct it.
- Causation – Causation means that the owner’s negligence caused or contributed to your accident and injuries.
- Damages – Lastly, you must have suffered injuries and damages that you can prove with medical records and expert witness testimonies.
