PI injury case: what legal basis can I use to prove

Customer Question

PI injury case: what legal basis can I use to prove liability in this case:
My 9 yo son suffered a substantial injury riding his bikes on someone else's property. We went to the ER, and the treatment is ongoing. I know what the the landlord's attorney are going to argue. What legal theory/theories can I use to prove liability?

Thank you for your question.

Was the accident caused by a dangerous condition of the property where it was being ridden?

Were there any defects in the bicycle (or helmet if there was one)?

Could you please describe how the accident happened?

my son borrowed a friend's bikes and rode down a very steep driveway. he didn't appreciate how steep it was because all other driveways in the hood are moderate. he says the brakes failed. I have to examine the brakes. At any rate, he rammed into a gate at the end of the driveway.

It sounds like there is a product liability claim based on the defective brakes.
