South Dakota Landowner Liability Lawyer

Premises liability is an area of law that oversees cases involving injuries people sustain while on another person’s property. Under premises liability law, anytime someone is injured while visiting another person’s property, injured victims may file lawsuits if certain key elements are met. By filing lawsuits, you may be able to collect monetary damages from property owners for medical expenses, lost income, potential lost income and also pain and suffering.

Landowner Liability Law

In order for someone to initiate a premises liability lawsuit, several conditions must be met. First, victims must be able to prove that property owners knew or should have known about dangerous conditions on their land. Property owners should have realized that a dangerous condition existed and that the condition may harm others. Second, victims must prove that property owners did not fix the dangerous condition. They must also prove that the property owners did not provide sufficient warnings that the condition existed. Finally, the victim must prove that he or she did not have reason to know that the condition existed or that he or she could have been harmed.

If victims are able to meet these requirements, they may be able to file a premises liability lawsuit, which would enable them to collect compensation. However, victims should know that these cases are never easy to win and may require advanced litigation tactics, which is why they should always work with an experienced premises liability attorney.
