Tennessee property owners have a responsibility and duty to your safety
Most cases of negligence are avoidable. But unfortunately, accidents do happen. If you are the victim of another’s negligence, you have a right to be compensated. In Tennessee, there is a body of tort law that deals specifically with premises liability. This includes dangerous pre-existing conditions that the owner of the premises knew or should have known about. To obtain compensation in a slip and fall accident, you need to show that such a condition existed at the time of your accident.
Tennessee law follows the regular negligence pattern which includes:
Duty: Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises and keep it free from unreasonable and hidden risks that they know or should know of. They also have a duty to warn of hidden or other dangers that may be on the premises.
Breach: Property owners breach their duty when they fail to maintain the premises, warn of dangers, clean up after a spill, or are otherwise neglectful in the display, organization, or other setup of the premises.
Causation: This is the direct link between your injury and the neglectful action of the property owner that caused your injury. To have a successful claim, you will need an experienced slip and fall attorney to articulate this link.
Damages: Damages are the amount of compensation you are owed, or that you must prove you are owed to have a successful claim, whatever that amount may be. We help you determine what you are owed for your injury and advocate for your monetary compensation.
Even if you believe that you were partially at fault, because of this standard negligence process, you may seek monetary compensation if the property owner breached their duty of care to you
