The term “premises liability” refers to the way that the law is applied to determine who – if anyone – will be financially responsible when a person is involved in an accident (other than a motor vehicle accident) that causes an injury or death.
When an “invitee” is injured, unless their injury is found to be caused by their own negligence, the person or entity who will likely be held financially responsible for those injuries is generally the owner or occupier of the premises. An invitee is a person that the premises owner or occupier has invited or welcomed onto the premises. An invitee can be a patron of a store, hotel, theme park, restaurant, public swimming pool, sporting event, or other business, or even a guest in someone’s home. The personal owner or business owner of the premises where someone is injured or killed for a reason other than their own negligence has the highest level of responsibility to invitees.
It's important to note that just because a person may have been injured by an unsafe condition, the property owner is not automatically negligent. The injured party must prove that the property owner previously knew or reasonably should have previously known that the property was in an unsafe condition, yet despite that knowledge, still failed to take appropriate steps to rectify the dangerous condition.
Premises Liability injuries are not always slip-and-falls or dog bites. In fact, many injuries and deaths each year in the United States are attributed to the following:
- 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.
