In a North Carolina premises liability case, the burden is on the injured party to prove negligence. This is why you need a lawyer who knows how to show that:
- The property owner created the hazard that led to the injury accident.
- If the owner didn’t create the dangerous condition, then they should have known about it and taken steps to repair or remove it.
- If there wasn’t enough time to get rid of the hazard before the accident happened, then the premise owner should have provided adequate warning about the danger.
Property owners, homeowners, building landlords, and business owners are supposed to keep their premises safe and free from dangerous or other unsafe conditions. However, the extent of that duty of care may vary depending on the reason the person who was hurt was even on the property. For example, a trespasser will not be owed the same duty of care as other people.Here Are Some of the More Common Types of Premises Liability Cases That Mauer Law Handles:
- Defective Property Conditions
- Inadequate Maintenance
- Falling Merchandise
- Negligent Security
- Retail Store Accidents
- Restaurant Accidents
- Slip and Fall Injuries
Many injuries and deaths that occur in a premises liability accident could have been avoided if only the property owner had not been negligent.
Because North Carolina has a contributory negligence law, if the victim played even the slightest role in causing the injury accident, the property owner may be able to avoid paying any compensation. However, there are exceptions to this law. This is another reason why you need Charlotte premises liability attorney Mike Mauer working for you. He has the experience, skills, and knowledge to help you identify these exceptions so that you are not denied the financial recovery you need.Former Insurance Defense Lawyer Now Representing the Injured
