Premises Liability Attorney
A premises liability action arises when a person suffers an injury that was caused by the improper design, construction, or maintenance of real property. Such injury gives rise to a claim against the possessor or owner of such a property.
A premises liability plaintiff may be an invitee, licensee, or trespasser. Typically, a plaintiff is required to prove that reasonable care was not taken by the landowner or possessor, or that necessary precautions or warnings were not displayed.
A plaintiff must also establish that the landowner or possessor had knowledge of the defect, that defendant breached the duty of care to remedy the defect, and that the defect led to the plaintiff’s injury.
