Proving Negligence in a Premises Liability Case
Property owners are legally responsible to ensure the safety of their property, particularly when the public will be using that property. When someone has suffered a serious injury in a store, a bar or restaurant, an office complex, or an apartment complex because of unsafe conditions, the property owner can be held financially liable if he or she was negligent.
Your ability to recover money for your injuries rests on the ability of your personal injury attorney to prove that the owner was negligent and that the owner's negligence was greater than any negligence on your part. That is when thorough and careful investigation counts most.
