If you are injured while on someone else’s property, the property owner might be liable for your injuries and damages. Damages in a premises liability claim include medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, and permanent disabilities. The amount you might receive for a premises liability claim depends on whether you can prove the property owner breached the duty of care owed to invitees and guests.
Proving Liability for a St. George Premises Liability Claim
All property owners owe a duty of care to invitees and guests to provide safe premises. In some cases, the duty of care can be extended to trespassers, especially young children who are enticed to enter the property. However, you must also prove that the property owner breached the duty of care.
In most cases, you must prove that the property owner:
- Failed to take reasonable steps to maintain the property;
- Knew or should have known about a dangerous or hazardous condition on the property;
- Failed to repair dangerous conditions; and,
- Failed to provide adequate warning of the dangers and risks.
Additionally, you must prove that the danger or hazard was a direct cause of your injury and that you suffered damages because of the injury. If you cannot establish a duty of care, breach, causation, and injury, you are unlikely to win a premises liability case.
