How to Prove Property Owner Negligence
A property owner can be held liable for your injuries if they failed to
maintain a safe environment or warn of a dangerous condition that existed
on the property. Although proving property owner negligence can be complex,
your legal team can use the experience of experts in construction or engineers
to help prove liability. There are many factors of proving liability but
generally, the injured party will have to prove:
- that the person whose actions led to the injury (the defendant) owned,
leased or occupied the property
- that the defendant was negligent in their use or treatment of the property
- that this negligent behavior was a substantial factor in causing the injuries sustained
Helping You Hold Property Owners Accountable
Actionable causes of slip and fall accidents can include:
- Wet or slippery surfaces
- Cluttered walkways
- Broken tiles
- Torn carpeting
- Uneven stairways
- Cracks or potholes
- Parking lots with tripping hazards
Though not strictly a "slip and fall" accident, falling debris
is also a frequent cause of premises liability claims. Whatever the condition
that caused your accident, if the property owner created the condition,
knew of the condition, or should have known of it, they may be held responsible
to compensate you for your injuries. If you're not sure whether the
injury you suffered was caused by the negligence of the property owner,
consult a Charleston personal injury attorney from Kahn Law Firm, LLP today!
