Who Can Be Held Liable in a Premises Liability Claim in Arizona?

Premises liability is the law that determines liability for injuries or accidents that occur on another’s property. The property owner, like a business owner, must provide, and is obligated to provide, under the law, safe premises and warn of any possible dangers that are present. When a premises owner fails to do this, they are considered negligent in their duty to protect others from potential harm and will be found legally liable for these injuries.

There are two main categories when it comes to determining liability in a premises liability case. The first category is individuals who have direct control over the premises (maintenance workers) and the second category is premises owners acting through employees.

Under the law, property owners must keep their property in a safe condition that keeps people safe from hazards. If an individual suffers injury due to the negligence of a property owner by failing to warn the individual of the hazard or maintaining the premises, the responsible parties (property owner) can be held liable for any damages.

Assessing Reasonable Care in a Premises Liability Case

A successful premises liability claim depends on clear and compelling evidence demonstrating the at-fault party's lack of reasonable care that led to the injuries and losses. Important questions to evaluate whether care is reasonable or not include:

  • How much control did the at-fault party have over the property condition?
  • How long had the property owner been aware of the hazardous condition?
  • How likely was it that an individual would have sustained injury by this unsafe condition?
  • Did the defendant provide any timely warnings about the dangers of the property condition?
  • How challenging would it have been for the landowner to remove or fix the dangerous condition?
  • Was the defendant aware or should they have been aware of the unsafe condition of the property?
