Phoenix Premises Liability Lawyers

Like most states, Arizona holds property owners and inhabitants responsible for the safety of guests on that property. This body of law is known as premises liability, because it makes property owners liable for injuries suffered on their premises. The law divides visitors into three different categories, each with different levels of entitlement: business invitees, licensees, and trespassers.

If you have been injured by a property owner’s or inhabitant’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensatory damages for your suffering.

The Premises Liability Basics

Responsibility for visitors’ safety can fall on a property’s owner or inhabitant (for example, a tenant in an apartment). In some cases, they may even share responsibility. The level of responsibility owed depends on the type of guest.

Business owners need to protect their customers (business invitees) from any hazard that they know about, or should know about. Property owners only need to alert social guests (licensees) about any potential hazards on their premises. When an adult trespasses on their land, they only need to avoid hurting him or her unnecessarily.

However, property owners and residents do need to take measures to protect child trespassers who are too young to understand personal safety. This obligation to keep children away from potential hazards is known as the attractive nuisance law.
