What Is Premises Liability?

When is an environmental hazard the responsibility of the property owner? There are many rules that establish property owner liability. First and foremost, the property must be open to the public. If you were trespassing in an area, this will significantly limit the compensation you can receive. Additionally, there must be a reasonable expectation that the property owners are aware of the hazard and should take steps to fix it. This is where situations can be a little trickier. What’s considered “reasonable” is often left to the discretion of the court. For instance, if a liquid were to spill in a supermarket, the property owner would be expected to find the hazard much faster than the owner of a large estate would find a sinkhole at the fringe of their land. Finally, if a hazard cannot be fixed right away, they must put up visible warning signs so that people are aware of the danger.

Some common premise liability hazards include:

  • Slippery floors
  • Uneven carpeting
  • Poor lighting
  • Negligent or lax security
  • Inadequate maintenance
  • Precariously placed objects in high places
  • Cracked sidewalks
