What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is a segment of personal injury law. It deals with property owners and the duty they have to provide reasonably safe premises for visitors to their premises. Premises liability is often a complex and confusing area of the law because property owners do not owe the same duty of care to every visitor upon their premises.

There are three types of visitors recognized by Colorado law. Visitors are either invitees, licensees, or trespassers.

The duty of care owed to each visitor is generally as follows:

  1. Invitees. Invitees are typically retail customers on a premises by expressed or implied invitation of the owner. Owners and operators of businesses need to maintain a reasonably safe property for invitees.
  2. Licensees. Licensees are usually social guests or enter a property with the owner’s permission for their purposes. Owners owe licensees a duty to protect or notify them of dangerous conditions that they know of or should know of.
  3. Trespassers. Trespassers enter a property without the owner’s permission or authorization. Owners owe trespassers little or no duty.
