As a Property Owner, Who Am I Liable to Protect and How is Negligence Shown?
Rules regarding who is legally owed reasonable care while on another’s property can be complicated. Someone who is owed no duty by the landowner is often referred to as a ‘trespasser,’ a term for someone who has no defensible reason to have been on the property when the accident occurred. This term is generally reserved for individuals who were previously forbidden from public property, or not invited onto a private property.
In order to prove that a property owner is negligent, it must be shown that the landowner knows about the condition that resulted in accident or injury and that they failed to correct the problem within a reasonable time frame.
The attorneys at Moblo, Fleming & Watt, P.C. can help build an effective case against anyone bringing a lawsuit or insurance claim to a property owner who is accused of negligence.
