When a person gets injured on the property of another person or company, the owners may be held liable for the accident. This type of personal injury case is often the result of poor maintenance or unsafe property. When going after a property owner after an injury on their premises, it is important to be able to prove that the owner was negligent. In regard to property, if a person does not reasonably maintain their home or land, or give proper warning, they can be found negligent and liable. The landowner also must have known about the hazard, and actively refused to take action.
