Premises Liability (Slip and Fall Claims) in Tennessee

01 Jan

A premises liability case, simply put, is where someone is injured on another's property due to some type of hazard.

The victim of a premises liability case must show that the premises owner was negligent and breached a duty to him or her.  The victim must also show that the premises owner created the dangerous or defective condition, or it was caused by a third party, and the owner knew or should have known of the dangerous condition.  

There is a comparative negligence defense.  To recover, the victim has to be less than 50% at fault.
