What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is an area of personal injury law. A premises liability claim arises when the negligence of a property owner or manager results in injuries to a visitor on that property. The most common premises liability claim is a slip and fall claim.

Other premises liability claims are as follows:

  • Negligent security
  • Animal attacks and dog bites
  • Loose or missing stair rails
  • Porch or stair collapse
  • Swimming pool injuries
  • Elevator and escalator malfunctions
  • Fires

Not every visitor to a property may make a premises liability claim. In Colorado, only two types of visitors have a claim for injuries against negligent property owners or managers. These are invitees and licensees.

  1. Invitees are generally retail customers. The owner of a premises needs to maintain a reasonably safe property for invitees.
  2. Licensees are often social guests or enter a property with the owner’s permission. Owners owe licensees a duty to protect or notify them of dangerous conditions that the owner knows of or should know of.

A third type of visitor, trespassers, have no permission or authorization to enter a premises. Therefore, trespassers have little or no recourse for their injuries.

Parties in Premises Liability Claims

Premises liability accidents and injuries can happen anywhere; there are dangerous property conditions or potential risks. At-fault parties or entities may include business or residential property owners or even the government.

Common premises liability claims involve the following parties:

  • Grocery and retail stores
  • Restaurants
  • Clubs and bars
  • Casinos
  • Gyms
  • Resorts
  • Hotels
  • Ski resorts
  • Amusement parks
  • Shopping centers
  • Construction sites
  • Apartment complexes
  • Homeowners

Time limits to file a claim can depend on the at-fault party. For instance, governments require immediate notification of a premises liability claim.
