What do I need to prove to be successful in a premises liability claim?
The first thing that needs to be established and proven is that the person in possession of the property or the owner of the property knew or should have known of the dangerous condition on the property in question.
The next step is to show that the possessor or owner of the property did not tell or warn anyone about the dangerous condition and did nothing to fix the condition.
Lastly, you must prove that the failure to fix the dangerous condition was the cause of your injuries.
