Premises Liability

Personal injury cases often focus on direct actions. Someone hits someone else with their car, a product is directly responsible for someone’s injury, a medication is defective when consumed. However, even locations can be responsible for people’s injuries. Slip and falls, unsafe environments, and other location-based injuries require someone to be responsible for these incidents. Premises liability exists to link responsibility between a location and its owner.

Protecting Visitors

Premises liability can apply to businesses, personal property, or even public buildings. Premises liability law varies by state, with some states differentiating between licensees, invitees, and trespassers, while other states simply require a standard of negligence to be proven.

Licensees, Invitees, and Trespassers

Some states have different standards of premises liability depending on whether the victim was a licensee, an invitee, or a trespasser. A licensee or invitee are people who have the owner’s permission to be on the premises for some period of time. By contrast, trespassers are individuals who did not have permission to be on the premises, stayed on the premises after they were supposed to leave, or moved into a part of the premises that was off-limits to them. If states do differentiate between licensees, invitees, and trespassers, then the burden of proving negligence is generally higher if the victim is classified as a trespasser. While owners may have a duty of care to invitees and licensees, the only duty they have to trespassers is to not intentionally leave traps that could injure the trespasser.

Negligence in Relation to Premises Liability

When it comes to proving premises liability, the main burden that must be proven is the standard of negligence. In order to be negligent, the property owner must have breached their duty of care. This breach could refer to knowingly refusing to repair a dangerous part of the premises, failing to maintain the property, or failing to warn about a dangerous part of the premises. If it can be demonstrated that the owner knew or should have known about a hazard on their premises and failed to appropriately address the situation, then there may be a premises liability personal injury case.
