PREMISES LIABILITY
Indiana Premises Liability Attorneys
Merrillville �Crown Point �Gary �Valparaiso

Property owners have a legal duty to keep people reasonably safe while on the property. The extent of the legal duty differs depending on the type of property and the type of visitor. For example, a private homeowner's responsibility to make the home safe for private visitors is different than a commercial property owner's legal duty to make the store safe for shoppers.

This legal concept is known as premises liability. Property owners have legal liability for their premises. Premises liability lawsuits may arise if a visitor is injured while on another's property. A successful premises liability lawsuit must prove that the property owner failed in his or her legal duty to keep the property reasonably safe.


Legal Representation From Knowledgeable Attorneys in Premises Liability Lawsuits
Success may be difficult to achieve in premises liability lawsuits because of the need to prove that the property owner violated the legal duty to keep the property safe. Questions that must be answered in a premises liability lawsuit include:

�Did the property owner know about the dangerous condition that caused the accident?
• If not, would a reasonable inspection have brought the condition to the property owner's attention?
