Premises Liability

If you have suffered an injury on someone else’s property, they may be liable for any damages that result. However, the legal definitions surrounding premises liability are extremely complex, can differ depending on what your relationship is to a property owner, and typically every jurisdiction has a different set of premises liability laws. As such, it is important to contact a Cincinnati personal injury lawyer to aid you in your case and help guide you through the legal process.

Invitees, Licensees and Trespassers

There are three major classes of people in terms of premise liability cases, depending on one’s relationship to the property owner. An invitee is any person invited onto the premises for the sole purpose of doing business. This invitation may be explicit, in the event of an actual invitation, or implicit, by means of a business opening its doors to the public.

A licensee, on the other hand, is someone who is invited onto a person’s property for the purpose of any activity besides business, such as a social guest. Finally, a trespasser is a person who, as the name implies, is on another person’s property without invitation. Typically, a property owner owes the highest duty of care to an invitee, a somewhat lower duty of care to a licensee, and little to no duty of care to a trespasser.
