A premises liability claim is based on the fact that the property owner has a duty to take reasonable precautions to safeguard guests and patrons against suffering injuries in an accident. Provided that the owner knew, or should have known, about the hazardous conditions which caused your accident, and failed to take action to remove the hazard or post warning signs, you have the right to claim damages. While there is no way for anyone to make a property 100% accident-proof, it is expected that the proprietor will conducted regular inspections of the premises and remedy any obvious dangers.
It is the duty of all property owners to fully inspect their property on a regular basis to ensure that patrons, tenants and visitors are not at risk of injury. If dangerous conditions are prevalent, they must be assessed and quickly addressed. If the potential hazard cannot be fixed and restored to a safe condition, adequate signage should be posted to ensure safety.
