The Law Firm You Choose Makes A Difference!
In order to pursue a premises liability claim, the plaintiff (you) must be able to prove :
1. The property owner had a duty of care toward you. A person has a duty to avoid causing damage or harm to another through an act or failure to act, if a reasonable person in the same situation could foresee the action or inaction could cause injury. For example, did the property owner have a pet that was known to attack people?
2. There was a breach of duty. It must be clear that the defendant was the one responsible for the act or inaction that caused the injury. Did the property owner neglect to post signs or keep the dog confined to his/her property?
3. The act or inaction was the cause of the injury. As a result of keeping the dog loose, were you bitten? 4. The damages that incurred as a result of the defendant’s action or inaction. This may include medical bills, lost wages, and related future medical costs. Did the dog bite result in surgeries, permanent disfigurement, or lost wages?
The law is not always summed up into yes and no answers. Please consult one of our attorneys to find out if you have a possible claim.
