Simply being injured while on another person’s property does not make that person or property owner liable for your injuries. You must prove negligence, meaning that the owner failed to provide or maintain safe premises, created hazardous conditions on the property, and failed to eliminate hazards.
Since premises liability and slip and fall claims involve complicated laws and legal issues, the first and most important step is to contact an experienced premises liability attorney. A thorough and quick investigation must be conducted and eyewitnesses must be contacted prior to any alteration or modification of the dangerous area. You should contact a lawyer as soon as is reasonably possible.
