Determining Fault in a Premises Liability Accident
The most important part of your premises liability claim will be determining who was at fault for your accident and injuries. In many cases, the property owner is the party who was responsible for your safety, and their negligence led to your accident. However, that’s not always the case. Other parties could be responsible for what happened. That’s why it’s crucial to have a premises liability lawyer on your side—they know exactly how to determine who was at fault.
Proving the property owner was at fault for your injury on their premises takes more effort in Arizona than some other states. When you were an invitee, or explicitly allowed on the premises, the property owner owes you a duty of care. A hazard simply existing on their premises is not enough for the owner to be liable, though. A victim must prove that the owner knew about the hazard on their property or created the hazard.
When proving fault of the property owner, these are the aspects your attorney will need to prove to ensure you have a successful claim:
- A dangerous condition existed on the premises and directly caused your injury.
- The property owner either caused or knew of the dangerous condition and did not give any warning.
- The property owner should have known about the dangerous condition because it existed for an amount of time that it would take to reasonably discover.
- The property owner failed to warn you of the danger or fix the dangerous condition before you came on the property.
This could all seem complicated, which is why having a premises liability lawyer on your side is important. They have expertise in premises liability law and know exactly what to look for in your claim so that they can prove those above points. That way, you have the strongest case possible.
