Premises Liability Lawsuits
Property owners or the possessors of property generally have a duty to use ordinary care to warn or otherwise protect invitees from risks of harm from a condition on the premises if:
- The risk of harm is unreasonable, and
- The property owner or possessor knows or should know of the condition, and should realize that it involves an unreasonable risk of harm to an invitee.
Even a trespasser may be able to recover damages if the premises owner knew it was likely that trespassers would enter the property. Children are owed a higher duty of care, regardless of whether they are considered trespassers.
