What is Premises Liability Law?

Debilitating and disabling injuries are no joke. And, when they happen on someone else’s property, you can rest assured a personal injury attorney can help you get the medical and financial assistance you need. Thankfully, the State of Utah has a Premises Liability Law that holds land and building owners accountable for injuries on their property.

What is Premises Liability Law?

In the State of Utah, Premises Liability refers to a set of laws that allow injured parties to bring their grievances against the owners of a property where the injury occurred. If the property has more than one owner, there will be multiple defendants in the case.

There is one caveat. To win a lawsuit against a property owner, the plaintiff or injured party must prove that the defendant knew about the dangerous conditions of their property.

Let’s look at an example. You are invited onto a property and are chased by an angry nest of hornets, resulting in multiple stings, swelling sting sites, and a trip to the emergency room. Upon further investigation, you discover that there was an infestation of hornets at the property. Something the property owner surely would notice, right?

Maybe so. However, you must prove that the property owner was negligent in addressing the issue of the hornet infestation. Furthermore, the injury must occur in a place where someone has a reasonable expectation of safety—for example, walking up to the front door of a business from the car or vice versa.

Overall, every lawsuit is the result of differing sets of circumstances. To know your chances of winning a case or finding out if going that route is right, contact a personal injury attorney who knows the ropes.
