There are numerous types of premises liability cases, and a wide range of injuries fall under this area of practice. Some of the most common types of premises liability cases include:
Liability in such cases stems from the fact that property owners owe guests and visitors a duty of care. Typically, this means that the person or persons who are in control of a premises are required to use reasonable care in maintaining it to ensure that it is in a reasonably safe condition. As such, they must either identify and repair any dangers on the premises, or warn guests and visitors of any known dangers.
To succeed in a premises liability case, an injured guest or visitor must demonstrate:
Generally, landowners only owe a duty of care to invitees or licensees. An invitee is an individual who either has the express or implied permission of the landowner to enter the property. A licensee has either the express or implied permission of the landowner to enter the property, and is entering it for his or her own purposes.
While trespassers are generally not afforded any protections since they are not authorized to be on the property, in some cases, a landowner might owe a trespasser a duty of care. For example, if the trespasser was a child, a duty of care would exist to avoid a reasonably foreseeable harm to children.
