Premises Liability Lawyers Representing People Harmed on Business Property

Premises liability is the legal concept where the owner of property is ultimately responsible for any injuries suffered by people on those premises due to negligence. Although residential homeowners are liable for their properties, business owners have an even higher standard of care owed to customers. This is because a business specifically invites people onto the property for its own monetary benefit.
