What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability refers to personal injury cases in which the injuries were caused by an unsafe or defective condition on someone’s property.

Types of Premises Liability Cases

Common types of premises liability cases that our law firm has encountered include:

  • Slip and fall cases, including slippery, wet, or oily floors; unsecured carpets or rugs; loose or broken stairs or sidewalks; and exposed extension cords
  • Swimming pool accidents, which can involve drownings and other water-related injuries
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Fires
  • Water leaks or flooding
  • Toxic fumes or chemicals
  • Dog bites
  • Snow and ice accidents

What Is a Duty of Care?

One of the main issues in a premises liability claim is what duty of care the property owner or possessor owes to the people on their property. For example, if the person is trespassing, the property owners may have limited liability because the injured individual was not legally allowed to be on the property.

However, people that are invitees or licensees may be eligible to seek compensation for their injuries on another’s property:

  • Licensees are generally social guests who have been specifically invited to be on the property, such as friends and relatives, but are not there for commercial or business purposes.
  • On the other hand, invitees are generally on the property for business, such as customers visiting a store, hotel, or restaurant.
