Forest Park Premises Liability Attorney
Premises liability is an important area of the law that addresses those injuries caused by negligent commercial property owners. When you visit a store, restaurant, or any other kind of business, you enter as an invited guest, and the business owes you a considerable duty of care related to your safe passage. If you’ve been injured as a result of a property owner or manager’s negligence, discuss the matter with an experienced Forest Park premises liability attorney as soon after the accident as possible.
How Premises Liability Claims Work
Slip and fall accidents are common premises liability claims, and they help illustrate how these complicated legal matters play out. Let’s take a closer look:
- When you head into the local grocery store, you’re unlikely worried about your safety, and the truth is the store owes you that duty of care mentioned.
- If the front entrance of the store has an uneven crack in the flooring, it’s a tripping hazard that amounts to a breach in the store’s responsibility to your safety.
- If you trip, slip, fall, and are injured as a result of that cracked flooring, it represents the next element in your claim.
- If you suffer losses that are addressed by the law as a result of slipping and falling, you have a premises liability claim.
The standard that business owners are held to is the level of care that other reasonable business owners employ in similar circumstances. And by the time flooring in the entryway of a grocery store becomes dangerously cracked, it’s reasonable to assume that the store’s manager knew about it – or, at the very least, should have known about it – and had time to address the risk appropriately.
