Question: If I Am Injured On Another Property, What Needs To Be Shown To Hold The Property Owner Responsible For My Injuries?

Answer: To hold a property owner responsible for your injuries obtained while on that property, you must be able to show that the property owner did something wrong which caused your injuries. For example, if the owner’s employee created a hazardous condition on the property and did not fix it or give adequate warning of the hazard, the owner would be responsible for your injuries. A property owner would also be liable for your injuries if they were caused by a part of the property which was improperly designed or damaged and not repaired. Examples of this could be a staircase with varying heights of steps or a stair-rail which was damaged and not repaired.
