Slip and fall accidents can cause serious injuries, and many times, the accident could and should have been prevented. If you have been injured on someone else’s property because of a dangerous and unaddressed condition, you may be entitled compensation for your losses.
In Arizona, owners and occupiers of land have a duty to prevent injuries from occurring on their property. This is called premises liability. The scope of this duty generally depends on the purpose for which the injured person was present on the property. The law recognizes three types of visitors: invitees, licensees, and trespassers.
- An invitee is someone who enters the property with permission for a business purpose, such as a shopper at a grocery store or an employee at the workplace. A landowner owes an invitee the highest duty, including the duty to warn of any dangerous conditions.
- A licensee is someone who enters the property with permission for a non-business purpose, such as a house guest. A landowner owes licensees a slightly lower duty, which includes duty to warn of non-obvious dangers.
- A trespasser is someone who enters the property without permission. Generally, landowners do not owe trespassers any duty. However, there are some exceptions, such as when the landowner deliberately caused the injury or when the trespasser is a child.
The AWD LAW team can assist you in evaluating the circumstances surrounding the incident, help you understand if premises liability applies, and ensure that you receive that to which you are legally entitled.
