Morgan County Premises Liability Attorney
The property owners and managers of those commercial properties we regularly visit, such as grocery stores, department stores, restaurants, and other businesses, owe us a duty of care. When we head out to do a bit of shopping, run errands, or grab a bite to eat, we shouldn’t be endangered by poorly maintained premises, and this is where that duty of care stems from. If a poorly maintained commercial property leaves you injured in a slip and fall accident or any other kind of accident, speak with an experienced Morgan County premises liability attorney today.
Premises Liability and Duty of Care
The duty of care owed to you by property owners and managers refers to their responsibility to exhibit the same level of care that other property owners and managers exhibit in similar situations. This means that if, for example, the majority of grocery store owners would have remedied the tripping hazard that left you injured, but the owner of the grocery store where you were injured failed to follow suit, he or she may have breached the duty of care owed to you.
The Elements of your Premises Liability Claim
The elements that make up viable premises liability claims include all of the following:
- The at-fault party owed you a duty of care to begin with.
- The at-fault party failed to uphold this duty by failing to remedy a danger that he or she either knew about or should have known about.
- This failure on the part of the at-fault party caused you to be injured.
- You suffered verifiable damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and/or pain and suffering, as a result.
