Property owners are legally responsible for keeping their property in safe condition for themselves and others. Premises liability cases involve injuries sustained by a person on another’s property.
To prove the property owner was negligent, it must be shown that the owner did not act reasonably in maintaining the property. This can be demonstrated by comparing how the property owner acted in comparison to a another person in a similar situation. If the owner did not act as another reasonable person would have in that situation, legal action may be available to those who were injured.
