Premises liability accidents refer to cases in which the victim was injured or killed due to a dangerous or defective property. Slip and falls are a very common kind of premises liability claim, but there are many others. For example, the Six Flags case I talked about in an article I posted yesterday, may also turn into a premises liability claim so long as the investigation can prove that the accident was caused by the negligence of the property owner (Six Flags).

When it comes to premises accidents, there are two basic rules:
1.) The property owner has a responsibility to keep the premises safe.

A visitor or patron of the premises should not be at any risk because the construction, condition, or design of the property. The owner has a duty to the visitor(s)’ safety because it is the owner who has control over the maintenance and safety of the property.

2.)The visitor must use the property in a customary fashion.
As stated above, the owner is responsible for the safety of the premises. However, the visitor or patron also has a duty to use the premises the way it was meant to be. For example, if the visitor is injured while intoxicated or in a marked off area, he or she may not be able to pursue a premises liability claim.
