What is Premises Liability?

Simply put, premises liability laws in California impose a duty on property owners and businesses to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition. If there’s a hazardous condition that the owner fails to fix or provide adequate warning of, they can be liable when an invited guest is injured or killed.

The lengths to which an owner has to go to protect you depend in part on whether you’re classified as an invitee, licensee, or trespasser.

Invitees are owed the highest duty of care. Owners are expected to inspect their property, fix hazards upon discovery, and/or provide appropriate warnings. You’re considered an invitee when your visit benefits the owner’s business interests in some way (e.g. dining at a restaurant or buying groceries at the store).

Licensees are owed a moderate duty of care. There’s no obligation to inspect the premises for dangers, but any hazards must be repaired or disclosed. You’re considered a licensee when your visit is for personal, rather than business, reasons (e.g., visiting a friend’s house or using the restroom at a gas station).

Property owners don’t have an explicit duty to protect trespassers unless the trespasser is a child and there’s an attractive nuisance like a swimming pool on the premises. 

Generally speaking, the circumstances of every situation will be taken into consideration when determining an owner’s duty of care.
