Premises liability

You are guaranteed a basic standard of care once you step onto another person’s property. If the property contains a dangerous condition and you suffer an injury because of it, you may be able to file a claim to obtain compensation.

A premises liability plaintiff case must meet the following guidelines to prove:

  • The property was or contained a hazard
  • The injury was a result of the hazard
  • The property owner or manager knew about the hazard
  • The property owner or manager did not fix the hazard within a reasonable time

Example: A bottle of milk spills in the aisle of a convenience store. The cashier sees the spill and informs the manager but cannot leave the counter to clean it. The manager forgets about the spill and does not clean it or post a warning about the hazard. Half an hour later, a customer slips, falls and injures herself. According to Brownsville, the customer is within her rights to sue the store manager or property owner for compensation for medical bills, physical therapy, pharmaceutical costs and wages lost due to her injury.
