Elements of a Premises Liability Claim
In order to prove a premises liability claim, the following elements need to be proven:
- The defendant owned, leased, occupied, or controlled the property.
- The defendant was negligent in the use of or maintenance of the property.
- The plaintiff suffered harm.
- The defendant’s negligence caused or contributed to cause the harm.
Unfortunately, proving those elements is not always straightforward. That is why it is critical you hire an experienced St. Louis premises liability attorney who can look into the specifics of your case.
