How West Palm Beach Premises Liability Claims Work
When a person is injured or killed due to unsafe property conditions, the victim or the victim’s family may bring forth a premises liability case in a West Palm Beach court. To legally collect compensation for damages, the victim must be legally allowed on the property as a guest or an invitee.
Examples of premises guests include shoppers in a retail store or patients in a medical building. Trespassers or property licensees are not covered under the same duty and obligation of care as guests and invitees. A premises liability attorney’s goal is to prove the negligence of the property owner, who breached their duty of care to maintain a safe environment for guests and invitees.
Many factors matter during a premises liability lawsuit, such as the property’s use, the victim’s relationship to the premises owner, signs or warnings that were given, and whether or not there is potential foresight of the accident. These lawsuits can be complex, so the guidance of a premises accident attorney is a must.
