“Premises Liability” points to the responsible party when an injury or death results from an accident. An "invitee" is a person that the premises owner or occupier has invited or welcomed onto the premises. An invitee is a patron of a store, hotel, theme park, restaurant, public swimming pool, sporting event, or other business. Furthermore, they can even be a personal guest in someone’s home.
The owner of the premises where someone is injured or killed has the highest level of responsibility to invitees. (This does not pertain when a victim's own negligence caused their injury or death.)
Additionally, "occupiers" of the premises have the second highest level of responsibility to invitees. An example of an occupier is a hair dresser who rents a booth in a salon. When an “invitee” is injured, the owner or occupier of the premises will likely be held financially responsible. (This does not pertain when a victim's own negligence caused their injury or death.)
However, a person being injured by an unsafe condition does not automatically make the property owner negligent. First, the injured victim must prove that the property owner previously knew or reasonably should have previously known that the property was in an unsafe condition. Then they must prove that despite that knowledge, the owner still failed to take appropriate steps to rectify the dangerous condition.
Consequently, it's interesting to note that Premises Liability injuries are not always slip-and-falls or dog bites. Many of our country's annual injuries and deaths happen because of:
- Elevator and Escalator Accidents
- Gas Explosion Accidents
- Hotel Accidents
- Swimming Pool and Poolside Accidents
- Trampoline Accidents
- Theme Park Accidents
- Or injuries as a result of a known Criminal Element frequenting the establishment.
