>  Premises Liability


What is Premises Liability? 

A property owner has a legal responsibility to keep his/her property in a reasonably safe condition. When an individual is lawfully on someone else’s property, the owner may be liable for injuries if the owner’s negligence was the reason for the injury. To prove negligence, the injured person must show that the property owner knew or should have known that premises were in an unsafe condition, and they failed to take proper steps to remedy the situation.

The Property Owner’s Duty of Care 

Premises liability law requires a property owner to uphold a duty of care to keep all persons free from harm while on their property.
