Premises Liability Laws
A person who owns or occupies property is negligent if he or she fails to use reasonable care to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition. Those in control of property must use reasonable care to discover any unsafe conditions and to repair, replace, or give adequate warning of anything that could be reasonably expected to harm others.
Typically, the question is whether in the management of his or her property, the possessor of land has acted as a reasonable person under all the circumstances. The likelihood of injury to plaintiff, the probable seriousness of such injury, the burden of reducing or avoiding the risk, the location of the land, and the possessor's degree of control over the risk-creating condition are among the factors to be considered by the judge or jury in evaluating the reasonableness of a defendant's conduct
Broadly speaking, premises liability alleges a defendant property owner allowed a dangerous condition on its property or failed to take reasonable steps to secure its property against criminal acts by third parties. Some examples of situations giving rise to a valid claim include:
- Constructing a ramp or other structure not in compliance with the Uniform Building Code, resulting in an accident.
- Permitting a slippery substance or tripping hazard to exist in a place of business for an unreasonable time.
- Allowing a violent patron to remain at a business, causing or contributing to an assault.
