How Do I Know if My Claim Is Valid?
Claims against negligent property owners are referred to as premises liability
claims. They can be filed when there is reason to believe that the property
owner's negligence caused harm to a visitor to the property. Often,
negligence takes the form of failure to address a hazardous condition
on the property.
It is important to note that, in order for a claim to be effective, there
must be evidence that the property owner had the opportunity to address
the hazard and failed to do so. Proof of the hazard alone may not be sufficient.
For example, if a freezer suddenly breaks down and a customer slips on
the liquid that has leaked out the victim has less of a chance at a successful
claim than if the freezer had been broken down for weeks and the property
owner failed to repair it.
