If you are injured on somebody else’s property, you may be able to recover damages by filing a premises liability lawsuit. Property owners owe a duty of care to people who visit their property. This duty involves keeping the property free from unreasonable dangers, and in order to fulfill the duty, property owners should conduct routine inspections of their property. Property owners and occupiers that become aware of a dangerous property condition should repair the problem or set out a warning to visitors. In order to recover damages, you will need to be able to show that the defendant knew or should have known of the dangerous property condition but neither fixed it nor provided warnings.
