What is premises liability?
When you visit a business, home, or other place of interest, you should feel safe from harm. However, sometimes people do not properly maintain their properties, which can result in injury to you or someone you know. Premises liability is the statute that says that property owners are legally responsible for keeping their property safe for any and all visitors.
An owner of a property is responsible for keeping the premise safe from hazards. This means that proper safety measures should be in place, such as fire detectors. Additionally, visitors should be protected from things like slip and fall accidents, building collapses, and toxins present in the building.
