Proving Fault in a Premises Liability Case
Plaintiffs in premises liability cases must prove that their injuries were in direct relation to the negligence of the property owner who failed to exercise a reasonable duty of care for their property.
Although a property owner has the legal responsibility to make sure they maintain a safe premises, the following factors are considered to establish the reasonable level of care standard:
- If the accident could have been foreseen
- How the property is intended to be used
- Why the injured party entered the property
To prove fault in a premises liability case, you must establish three factors:
- Duty of Care: This covers the basic steps a property owner should have taken to minimize any possible danger to visitors or guests who might be involved in actions that could result in harm.
- Breach of Duty: This requires proving the property owner failed to maintain the duty of care because of carelessness or negligence. Carelessness covers any actions that help to create a dangerous situation, while negligence occurs when the property owner is aware of dangerous conditions on their property but fails to fix it.
- Breach Of Duty Caused the Injury: This final factor involves convincing a judge or jury that the defendant’s negligence or carelessness failed to provide a standard of reasonable care, resulting in the injuries you suffered.
