What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Premises Liability Lawyer

Premises liability refers to a person’s obligation to keep his or her property safe for anyone who might visit. This can apply to anyone who owns, rents, or inhabits a certain property. For example, a landlord may be responsible for maintaining the shared areas of the building, such as the laundry room, while a tenant is responsible for his or her own apartment. If one person is injured on another person’s property, the property owner may be liable.

Visitors and Premises Liability

Florida law recognizes three basic kinds of visitors. A property owner has a different level of legal obligation to each kind.

The highest level of obligation is to business invitees, meaning people who enter a property for business reasons, such as customers in a store. Anyone in charge of a property is obligated to make sure it is as safe as possible for business invitees.

Licensee is the legal word for friends or other visitors who are invited onto a property for non-commercial reasons. The controller of that property is legally expected to keep their property safe or warn visitors about any potential dangers.

Even trespassers, the last kind of visitor, are owed some protection. No one called be held responsible for failing to warn a trespasser about certain dangers, but people are not legally allowed to intentionally hurt trespassers.
