Any person entering your property has a reasonable expectation of remaining unharmed. Whether you are the owner or the non-owner resident of the property, your duty is to maintain a safe environment for anyone who has the legal right to be there. When that responsibility is violated, a premises liability attorney can help you understand whether you have a claim. In some cases, someone may not have the right to be on your property or is intoxicated while on your property. In these cases, they may not have a claim of premises liability.

Each state maintains its own laws and statutes regarding liability in these cases. Many states focus on the legal status of the visitor while others concentrate on the condition of the environment where the injury occurred.

The legal team of Lewis & Keller will help you or your loved one if you were injured on another person’s property. To find out if you have a claim of premises liability, contact our firm by submitting the free case evaluation form on the left side of this page. There is no obligation, it is 100% free and your details are always confidential.

What Kind of Visitor Were You?

There are three categories that property visitors fall into: invitee, licensee or trespasser. Determining the status of a visitor is central to understanding liability when an injury happens on another person’s property. The definitions of these three visitor types are:

An invitee is a person who is welcomed onto the property by the owner or non-owner resident with the purpose of conducting business. A common example is a grocery store or other retail location that invites consumers to shop with them. The invitee is usually owed the greatest debt of care by the owner or non-owner resident.

A guest is a common example of a licensee. These visitors are invited onto the property without any commercial or business intentions.

Typically, trespassers are not owed any duty of care by owners and non-owner residents. If a burglar breaks into your home and trips over an electrical wire, they would not have the right to hold you accountable for their injury.

Thank you and your staff for your graciousness and attention to my situation. Even though I didn't have a case, you helped me by letting me know whether I had a case. I don't have to wonder anymore.  Also, you informed me that the hotel where I sustained my injury had accident insurance. The hotel didn't inform me about this, but contacted their insurance company after I inquired about it. The insurance company will pay the deductible for my medical expenses. May God continue to bless you and to make you a blessing.

Types of Dangerous Property Conditions

Cases of premises liability can arise from a number of dangerous property conditions. Slip-and-fall cases, for example, are often caused by spilled liquid, slick ground or unstable flooring. The following are several instances that could result in a premises liability claim:

  • Inadequate maintenance
  • Defective conditions – A shopkeeper does not notify patrons that current construction has created dangerous conditions and a patron is cut on a piece of steel protruding from the wall.
  • Inadequate security – A parking facility does not have adequate lighting installed and a person returning to their car is robbed.
  • Slip-and-fall – A grocery store fails to clean up a spill and an elder shopper slips on it, causing them to break a hip.
