Filing a Premises Liability Claim
To win a premises liability claim, you will have to prove several things. They are as follows:
- There was a dangerous property condition present.
- The property owner either knew or should have reasonably known about the unsafe property condition.
- The property owner’s failure to fix the unsafe property condition timely directly caused your injury.
- Your injury caused you to sustain damages.
As long as you can prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence, you should recover financial compensation to help cover the cost of any economic and non-economic damages you’ve sustained. Economic damages seek to compensate you for financial damages, such as lost wages, medical bills, and more. Non-economic damages seek to compensate you for any emotional trauma, pain and suffering, and other types of non-monetary damages you’ve sustained in your accident.
