The Duties of a Property Owner
A property owner owes a duty to those who enter their property lawfully. The duty that a property owner owes to those who are lawfully upon property is to correct any known hazards within a reasonable amount of time. In order to be liable for the failure to do this, someone injured must be able to prove that:
- A hazardous condition existed on the property;
- The property owner knew or should have known of the condition;
- The property owner failed to remedy the condition within a reasonable amount of time; and
- The condition was the proximate cause of your injuries.
