What is premises liability?


Premises liability is the body of law dealing with the duty that a landowner or other person in control of the conditions of land or any improvements thereon (such as sidewalks, parking lots, retail stores, warehouses, grocery stores, restaurants, hotels, motels, and other businesses) to individuals who come onto the property or into the business to protect them from dangerous conditions or warn them of the dangers in doing so.




What are premises liability claims?


Premises liability claims are those claims that individuals have against the owners or operators of land or any improvements thereon (such as sidewalks, parking lots, retail stores, warehouses, grocery stores, restaurants, hotels, motels, and other businesses) as a result of injuries and damages sustained as a result of dangerous conditions located there.




How is premises liability determined?


Premises liability is determined by a judge or jury based upon the duty owed by a landowner or business owner to prevent, correct, or warn of dangerous conditions which may exist on their property. The duty owed to the person injured or damaged depends on what a reasonable person may expect to be present on that property and the type of person who sustains the injury or damage (whether a trespasser, child, person of limited capabilities, or a consumer on business property).
