Proving Liability For Negligent Property Owners

Many people assume that just because a person is injured on someone else's property, the home or business owner is automatically responsible. Not so. In fact, proving liability in a premises liability case can be rather difficult, especially without legal guidance.

Based in Brownsburg, Indiana, personal injury attorney Matt Boulton puts his more than 20 years of trial and settlement negotiation experience to work for injured clients. When insurance companies and lawyers cast doubt on your claims, he knows how to protect your rights and recover the compensation you need.

How To Prove That A Property Owner Is Responsible

To be able to recover compensation for your injuries, your case must prove the following:

  • The property or area was dangerous.
  • The owner had knowledge of the dangerous condition.
  • The owner had time to correct the dangerous condition(s).
  • The dangerous condition caused damages.

To strengthen your case, it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible after your accident. Many times, property owners, such as retail stores, will move quickly to address safety hazards after an accident occurs. For example, if you slipped and fell because of a faulty step, they will likely repair the step rather quickly.

Skilled attorneys like Matt Boulton can act quickly to secure evidence, such as surveillance camera footage, and locate witnesses who can back up your account. It is also important that you seek medical care to prove that your accident caused your injuries.
