What is Premises Liability?

Simply put, premises liability often comes to play in personal injury cases when a person was hurt from an unsafe or defective condition on someone’s property.


Not surprisingly, this is a complex legal issue because to win a premises liability case, it must be proven that the property owner was negligent. An unsafe property does not automatically mean that the owner was negligent. A negligent property owner was aware of a hazardous condition and failed to take the proper steps to remedy the situation.
