What Is Premises Liability?

Premises liability refers to a specific type of personal injury claim that arises when someone is injured by the conditions on another party’s property. The law generally requires that property owners keep their premises in a safe condition for all lawful visitors. In a premises liability claim, the owner of the property (and their insurance company) is held liable for the expenses and losses that arise from the visitor’s injuries.

What Do You Have to Prove in a Premises Liability Claim?

To succeed in a premises liability claim, you must prove that you were injured by a dangerous or defective condition on someone else’s property while you were lawfully visiting the property. In addition, you must prove that:

  • The condition that caused your injuries was either created by the property owner or the property owner had an obligation under the law to fix the condition or warn you of its presence.
  • The property owner either knew of the condition or it existed long enough for the property owner to have discovered it and taken action.
