People visit all kinds of places all over the city of Flint every day. Most people move about to and from their various destinations without ever giving their surroundings too much thought. Most places are generally safe and most people don’t ever run into any serious trouble as they go about their day doing the many activities that they participate in. However, without question, there are many circumstances and/or locations that can be dangerous, and which lead to accidents. When someone is hurt because of an unsafe location or a dangerous environment they might be eligible to file a premises liability case.

So what exactly is a premises liability case and how do they typically work? In general terms a premises liability case claims that a property owner is liable for any accidents and injuries that take place on his or her property. One of the most common types of premises liability cases is a slip and fall accident. When someone slips and falls and is injured on someone else’s property and the owner is found to be responsible for the conditions that existed then the property owner could be held liable for the injuries to the person who fell. fore example, if someone slipped in a puddle of water at a grocery store, or on some ice in a hotel parking lot or sidewalk then the owner could be accountable and the injured person could receive damages.

In order to prove that a home or property owner is liable you generally have to prove that the owner was aware of the unsafe condition and that he or she didn’t do anything to fix the problem. In other words you have to show that the owner was actually negligent. In addition, you will have to show that you suffered some kind of injury or loss, and you will have to show that the dangerous condition was actually what caused your injury or loss.
