You have been injured on someone else’s property. Do you have legal recourse? In premises liability law, the burden of proof lies with the injured party. We have to prove there was an abnormally dangerous condition. Examples could include a broken step, water on the floor, or ice on a step.
In order to prove this liability, we will need to gather evidence by taking photographs, talking to witnesses, talking to experts, and determining if the fall was preventable. Ultimately, we need to determine why you didn’t notice a dangerous condition. There are also strict time deadlines that may apply in your case and we need to be cognizant of these. Finally, it will be important to understand and prepare for the commonly-used defenses of the insurance companies.
