WHEN CAN I PURSUE A PREMISES LIABILITY CASE
Premises liability law ensures that private property owners are legally encouraged to maintain a safe premises by imposing a “duty of care.” They must ensure that their property is maintained to an acceptable legal standard. If visitors are injured on private property (in some cases, even if the visitor was a trespasser) , the private property owners could be held responsible for your injuries and required to provide you just compensation.
The general legal standard that must be met is that the injured party must show that the owner of the property knew about the hazardous condition or should have known about it and failed to correct the condition that caused the injury.
