The specifics of premises liability laws vary from one state to another. Generally, though, these laws are based on the legal principle that a property’s owner or occupier has a duty to monitor their property for hazards that can cause accidents resulting in injury. Property owners must address dangers in a timely manner so that they do not pose a threat to guests and anyone else with a legal right to be on the premises. When a hazard cannot be eliminated, precautions must be taken to minimize the chances of allowing someone to be harmed.
Some property owners don’t fulfill this duty. You may have been injured due to such a property owner’s carelessness.
