What is it?
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.
How it works
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.
