The Mike Kelly Law Group has handled hundreds of cases for individuals that have sustained injuries while on someone else's property. This area of practice is typically referred to as premises liability. An owner of a property that extends an invitation to the general public or holds its premises open for a purpose connected with its business has a duty to exercise reasonable care for the safety of its visitors.
The owner or occupier of the property has a duty to warn visitors of hidden dangers or any unsafe conditions that the owner should have known about. If the owner or occupier of the property fails to discover risks and take safety precautions to warn of or eliminate foreseeable risks and such failure causes injuries to a guest, the owner may be liable for the resulting damages.
