Did you know that thousands of people sustain injuries while being on someone else’s property every year? Often you can easily incur injuries through no fault of your own when you visit property such as apartment complexes, motels and hotels, stores, and office buildings.
Since premises liability law is one of the broadest areas of personal injury law, it can be incredibly difficult to navigate. Yet, with the help of a Chicago premises liability attorney from The Horwitz Law Group, you can potentially build a successful premises liability case and obtain compensation for your injuries.
Many people find themselves asking what premises liability is when they are trying to determine if they have a viable case against a property owner. Essentially, premises liability comes into play when your injuries were caused by a defective or unsafe condition on someone else’s property.
Like personal injury cases, premises liability cases are also based on negligence. If you hope to win a premises liability case, you need to prove that the property owner was purposely negligent concerning the maintenance or ownership of their property.
However, you need to note that just because you sustained injuries on someone else’s property does not automatically make the property owner negligent or responsible. Additionally, even if the property was in an unsafe condition, it does not, in all instances, mean the property owner was negligent.
To prove that the property owner was negligent, you need to prove that they should have reasonably known that their premises were in an unsafe condition and that they failed to remedy the situation intentionally. An attorney can help you determine if a property owner was negligent.
