Who Can File Premises Liability Claims?
An important aspect of a premises liability case is whether, at the time
of the accident, you were an invitee, licensee or trespasser on the property.Invitees
and licensees are typically owed the greatest duty of care.
An invitee is someone the homeowner invites onto his/her premises for any
lawful purpose (for example, a contractor). A licensee is someone who
is permitted to be on the premises (for example, a social guest). While
they are owed the least duty of care, trespassers are still owed a duty
of care, in that a homeowner cannot prepare traps to purposefully injure
a trespasser. Find out whether you have a valid premises liability claim
on your hands by talking to me.
Proving Premises Liability
In order to win a premises liability case, you must show that the landowner
caused the dangerous condition, knew about it and did nothing or should
have known about it and did nothing.
Examples of dangerous conditions include:
- Broken stairs
- Cluttered store aisles
- Falling merchandise
- Faulty wiring
- Insufficient security
- Lead paint
- Loose shingles
- Poor lighting
- Slippery floors
- Toxic mold
- Uneven floors
