Premises liability law places the responsibility for proper maintenance of a building or the surrounding grounds squarely on the shoulders of the owner or operator. This includes residences, hotels, apartment buildings, office buildings, retail businesses, malls, and public buildings. Anyone who is injured, despite taking reasonable care, as a result of a hazardous condition inside or outside may be due compensation.

Premises liability cases involve complex issues and depend greatly upon being able to prove that a hazardous condition existed, that the owner was aware of it or should have been, that there was no or an inadequate posted warning, and that your injuries resulted from the accident. The lack of action or care is called negligence. Every personal injury case is subject to the same legal standard; the burden of proof. This means that a defendant is innocent until proven otherwise. While in criminal cases, the burden of proof is on the prosecutor, it is up to the victim of negligence to prove a case.
If you have suffered at the hands of a negligent property owner and are successful in proving negligence, you could be entitled to compensation. A negligent property owner may be liable for compensation for medical expenses, lost income, future lost wages, pain and suffering and other directly-related expenses.
