Dangerous Conditions on Private or Public Property
Most of us enjoy shopping at big box stores. They offer one-stop shopping for a wide range of products at competitive prices. But when managers and staff are not sufficiently focused on customer safety, these huge locations can be dangerous. If you have been injured due to dangerous conditions in a big box store, or any retail business, your case falls into an area of law known as Premises Liability. This type of claim may happen in all sorts of premises — a private home, retail business, cultural or sporting event, public or private walkway. The legal responsibility of the property owner varies according to the particular facts of the case.
For you to be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries, an attorney must first prove that the property owner was negligent. In this situation the owner is negligent if the owner knew about the dangerous situation or should have known about it and did nothing to fix or prevent injury. It is not uncommon for the condition that caused the accident to be repaired, covered up, or removed by the property owner immediately following the accident. Premises liability claims require immediate, skilled investigation to ensure a successful result.
