Premises Liability – People who own and control real property, whether it be commercial establishments like grocery stores, or even private residences, have a duty to correct any known dangerous conditions on their property so that visitors don’t get hurt because of conditions that are hidden or otherwise difficult to see. This can include faulty flooring, spilled liquid, insufficient lighting, and countless other issues. If they haven’t fixed or cleaned up a problem they are aware of, owners have a duty to warn their visitors of the dangerous condition. When property owners or tenants fail to uphold these duties and someone ends up being hurt, the owner and/or tenant may be liable for their visitor’s injuries.
