Premises Liability Claims
There is a wide assortment of premises liability claims. These include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Slip and falls
- Negligent security
- Swimming pool accidents
- Escalator and elevator accidents
- Construction and other workplace accidents
Premises liability accidents may occur on commercial property, private property, or local, state, or federal government property. To prove a premises liability claim, the owner of the property must owe the visitor on the property a duty of care. The duty of care owed depends on the classification of the visitor.
Proving a Premises Liability Claim
There are four classes of visitors under the law. These include:
- Invitees. An invitee includes an invited guest or store patron. Owners owe a duty to keep the property reasonably safe for invitees.
- Licensees. Licensees enter the property for their purpose with the owner’s permission. Owners owe these visitors a duty to notify them of hidden or hard to see hazards on the property.
- Trespassers. Trespassers do not have permission to enter the property. Owners cannot from willfully or wantonly injure trespassers.
- Child trespassers. Children receive special treatment under the law, especially young children. It is best to get individual advice from an experienced premises liability attorney regarding claims involving children.
After proving a property owner owed a duty of care to a visitor, there must be proof of the following:
- The property owner breached, or failed to meet, that duty
- That failure caused or contributed to the visitor’s injury
- The visitor suffered actual physical injuries due to the property owner’s negligence or failure
