What is Premises Liability?
The responsibility of a store, restaurant, coffee shop, even the home of a friend, to be in a reasonably safe condition is based on a legal principle called premises liability. At its heart, the doctrine of premises liability requires the individual, or company, with control over a particular location to maintain it in a reasonably safe condition.
The types of individuals responsible for maintaining a property in a safe condition for visitors depends on who has actual control over the venue. A determination of who or what has control over a particular store, restaurant, or other location, is determined on a case-by-case basis.
Examples of who may be responsible for keeping a location safe under the doctrine of premises liability include:
- store owner
- restaurant owner
- commercial property owner and landlord
- residential homeowner
- residential tenant
