Unsafe Conditions On The Property Of Another
Property owners, including stores and commercial enterprises, have a duty to maintain their property in a safe manner and condition. Similarly, animal owners have a duty to maintain control of their pets. Premises liability claims arise when someone is injured on another’s property because of a fall, dog or animal attack, assault, or another dangerous condition.
If you or someone you know has been injured as the result of an unexpected event on another’s property, you may be concerned about who will pay for your medical bills and other expenses. The attorneys of Geary & Geary, LLP, can advise you of your rights and work to help you protect your rights and get the recovery you deserve.
Understanding Premises Liability Cases
Examples of unsafe conditions include tripping hazards such as poorly placed mats, obstructions in the path of travel, a rotted out deck and unsafe stairways. Very often the victims are blamed.
In order to prove a premises liability case, the injured person must show that the property owner knew or should have known of the dangerous condition and did nothing to remedy the condition. The injured person must also show that the dangerous condition was the cause of their injuries.
