Our Bountiful premises liability attorneys review your case at no charge and explain your legal rights and options during a free consultation.
When Are Property Owners Liable for Injuries On Their Property?
Premises liability laws apply to both private and public properties. They also apply to residential property owners and commercial property owners. If a property owner breaches the duty of care owed to invitees and guests on their property, the owner could be liable for damages.
To recover damages for an injury that occurred on another party’s property, you must prove the elements of a premises liability claim. Most claims are based on the elements of negligence:
- The property owner owed a duty of care to you;
- A dangerous or hazardous condition existed on the property that the owner knew or should have known about;
- The property owner breached the duty of care by failing to warn you of the danger or failing to take steps to remedy the condition;
- You were injured as a direct result of the dangerous or hazardous condition; and,
- You sustained damages because of your injury.
Proving that the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition and breached the duty of care by failing to protect guests and invitees can be challenging. Also, proving causation can be tricky. You must prove that your injury was directly related to the condition on the property.
Our personal injury lawyers in Bountiful have extensive experience handling these types of cases. They handle the investigation and all aspects of the case, including monitoring deadlines to file claims and dealing with the insurance company and the property owner. You can focus on healing from your injuries and returning to a normal life.
