Were They Negligent?
You must prove that the defendant was negligent in maintaining a reasonable level of safety on their property.
Did Negligence Cause Injury?
You will also need to prove that you were injured and that your injury was directly caused by the negligence of the property owner.
What kinds of hazards must property owners prevent?
Something as simple as a cracked sidewalk can cause tremendous harm.
