If a person gets hurt on your property due to defective or dangerous conditions, premises liability law establishes their right to be compensated for damages. Following the incident (which could be due to an accident or an assault), the injured party may choose to contact an attorney and file a lawsuit claiming your responsibility for their injury.
If someone is injured, proving the injury is typically (although not always) straightforward – so the key to how a case is usually decided is whether you are liable for that injury or not.
