What Is Premises Liability?

Premises liability refers to personal injury cases in which an unsafe or defective condition caused injuries on someone’s property. Common types of premises liability cases our firm handles include:

  • Slip and fall accidents – slippery, wet, or oily floors, unsecured carpets or rugs, loose or broken stairs or sidewalks
  • Dog bites
  • Swimming pool accidents involving drownings and other water-related injuries
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Fires
  • Water leaks or flooding
  • Toxic fumes or chemicals
  • Snow and ice accidents

What Is a Duty of Care?

One of the main issues in a premises liability claim is the duty of care a property owner, or possessor owes to the people on their property. 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 who are considered invitees or licensees may be eligible to seek compensation for their injuries:

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