What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is an area of personal injury law that addresses injuries that occur on someone else’s property. Under Arizona law, property owners and occupiers have a legal duty to keep their premises reasonably safe for visitors. This includes anyone who is lawfully on the property, such as customers, tenants, and social guests.

There are three main types of visitors under premises liability law:

  • Invitees: These are people who are invited onto the property for the financial benefit of the property owner. For example, a customer at a retail store is considered an invitee.
  • Licensees: These are people who are invited onto the property for non-financial reasons. For example, a guest at someone’s home is considered a licensee.
  • Trespassers: These are people who are on the property without permission. Generally speaking, property owners do not owe a duty of care to trespassers. However, if a property owner/occupier is aware that people are regularly on their property, they may be held liable for any injuries those individuals sustain.

Who is Liable for a Premises Liability Injury?

The person or entity that is liable for a premises liability injury will depend on the nature of the accident and the specific circumstances involved. In some cases, the property owner will be liable. In others, it will be the property occupier. In still others, it may be both the owner and the occupier. It is also possible that a third party will be liable.

Generally speaking, the liable party will be the one that:

  • Is responsible for maintaining the property
  • Controlled the property at the time of the accident
  • Caused or contributed to the dangerous condition that resulted in the injury

Our Tucson premises liability lawyers can help you determine who is liable for your injuries and work to hold them accountable. If multiple parties are liable, we will help you take the appropriate legal action.

What Compensation is Available in a Premises Liability Case?

If you were injured on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for all related losses. In Arizona, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you fail to do so before the two-year deadline, the court will almost certainly refuse to hear your case, and you will lose your opportunity to recover compensation.
