Premises Liability & Proving Negligence
Businesses and property owners have a responsibility to exercise reasonable care and maintenance to keep their premises safe for those who enter onto their property. If someone is injured or killed due to the business’ or property owner’s failure to prevent or repair unsafe conditions, they may be liable for that person’s injuries or death. Although property owners are obligated to practice duty of care to keep their premises safe, for them to be held liable for your injuries, you must prove that the owner or an employee was negligent in their duty to keep the premises in good condition. Our slip and fall attorneys at Thomas, Conrad & Conrad have years of experience building solid cases to prove negligence and liability in all types of personal injury cases.
