Property owners are responsible for ensuring the safety of those that may enter their property. If someone is hurt, they may be able to recover compensation for their injuries. Whether it be slipping and falling, inadequate maintenance or safety or defective conditions, premises liability hold landowners and tenant responsible for the legal principles when someone steps foot on their property.

Common examples can include slipping on a wet floor or lack of appropriate lighting in a parking garage. They can also be dependent on inclement weather issues such as uncleared snow and icy sidewalks. Even defects in furniture such as chairs or benches can be a result of negligence on the property owner’s part.

A victim is first identified as an invitee, licensee or trespasser. For example, an invitee is considered someone who enters the land in order to further the purpose of the landowner. This includes customers entering retail shops or restaurants. A licensee is someone that enters onto the land for their own purposes, such as a social guest. Finally, a trespasser is considered someone that entered the land without any right to do so. Dependent on the status of the victim, the level of protection from harm varies.

From there, the property is carefully investigated and the question of foreseeability and reasonableness come into play. If it is clear that it was foreseeable that an accident or injury could have occurred, this points to the victim’s claim. They will also look to see if any effort to repair dangerous conditions or warn visitors of potential danger was taken.
