Premises Liability Claims in McDonough
When you head out to go about your daily business, you’re thinking about your to-do list and not about being injured in one of the businesses you enter. The fact is, however, that negligence on the part of a property owner or manager can lead to dangerous accidents like serious slip and falls. If you’ve been injured as a result of a property owner’s negligence, you shouldn’t wait to reach out to an experienced premises liability lawyer in McDonough.
The Property Owner’s Duty of Care
When you enter a store, a restaurant, a business, or any other enterprise where you conduct business, the property owner or manager owes you and every other invited guest (customer) a duty of care. This duty amounts to keeping the premises in reasonably safe condition that allows safe passage for customers like you. Reasonable in this context means a level of care that is in keeping with the level reached by the majority of reasonable owners of similar kinds of properties.
The Elements of Your Premises Liability Claim
In order to bring a successful premises liability claim, the following elements must apply:
- The property owner owed you a duty of care (a store’s owner or manager, for example).
- The property included a breach of this duty of care (a dangerous tripping hazard, for example).
- This breach directly caused you to be injured (you tripped over the hazard, fell, and sustained a serious injury, for example).
