Premises Liability Vocabulary
Premises liability is a part of personal injury law. It deals with injuries sustained on another party’s property. A property owner is responsible for keeping their property safe for visitors. This includes warning people of potential hazards, such as wet floors, and maintaining the premises to ensure safety regulations are met. If a property owner fails to uphold their responsibilities, they may be held financially liable for their negligence.
