When to Call Our Lancaster Premises Liability Attorneys
Premises liability is a legal term for the liability of property and business owners for injuries incurred by others as a result of their negligence in ensuring safe conditions on their property or at their business. In simpler terms, “premises liability” includes all lawsuits related to a person’s injury on someone else’s property.
In a premises liability lawsuit, the injured victim should prove one or more of the following:
- The property owner or manager created the condition that led to injury
- The property owner or manager knew of the dangerous condition but failed to prevent it
- The dangerous condition existed for long enough that a reasonable property owner or manager would have been aware of the condition and repaired it
- The victim’s injury was caused by the negligent and unsafe condition of the property
