What is Premises Liability?
Premises liability is the legal term that describes an owner or occupier’s responsibility to maintain a safe environment for visitors.
In order to file a premises liability claim, you must have been injured on someone else’s property due to the property owner or occupier’s negligence in maintaining the property.
There are three primary ways in which people are injured on another person’s property:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Inadequate security leading to assault or battery
- Exposure to hazardous conditions
What Are the Different Types of Premises Liability Claims?
There are three different types of premises liability cases:
- Negligent maintenance cases, in which the property owner or occupier knew or should have known about a dangerous condition on the property but did not take reasonable steps to fix it.
- Inadequate security cases, in which the property owner or occupier knew or should have known about a dangerous condition on the property but did not take reasonable steps to protect visitors from it.
- Intentional tort cases, in which the property owner or occupier intended to injure the visitor.

What are Your Legal Rights for Accidents?
In order to have a valid premises liability claim, you must be able to show that the property owner or occupier owed you a duty of care and breached that duty, causing you to suffer injuries.
The type of duty owed to you will depend on your status on the property at the time of the accident. There are three different categories of visitors:
- Invitees: people who are invited onto the property for business purposes, such as customers at a store
- Licensees: people who are allowed onto the property for their own convenience, such as social guests
- Trespassers: people who are not supposed to be on the property at all
Property owners and occupiers owe invitees and licensees the highest duty of care, to keep the property reasonably safe for their visit.
For trespassers, property owners and occupiers only owe a duty to not intentionally injure them.
What Should You Do If You’ve Been Injured on Someone Else’s Property?
If you’ve been injured in an accident on someone else’s property, there are some important steps you should take:
- Get medical help immediately, even if you don’t think you’ve been seriously injured. Some injuries, such as concussions and whiplash, may not be immediately apparent.
- Get the contact information of any witnesses to the accident.
- Take photographs of the scene of the accident, if possible.
- Report the accident to the property owner or manager.
- Keep track of any medical treatment you receive and any costs you incur as a result of the accident.
