The Basics of Premises Liability
When someone owns a building or property, they’re responsible to keep the grounds safe for guests, employees, visitors, and the general public. If a person is injured because the property owner was negligent in maintaining the premises resulting in unsafe conditions, the owner can be held accountable by law under the claim of “premises liability.”
Some examples of premise liability cases are:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Parking lot accidents
- Unsafe stairs, escalators, or elevators
- Dangerous amusement park equipment
- Dog bites and attacks
- Park and playground accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Falling objects at a construction site
- Failure to place signage about unsafe conditions
What is Premises Liability Law in Washington?
The premise liability law in Washington states that a property owner owes visitors to their land a duty of care, meaning that they are to keep and maintain their premises in such a manner that it will not cause harm or injury to invitees and licensees. “Invitees” are those who visit a property for business purposes, while “licensees” are those who visit a property for social purposes. A third party, deemed as “trespassers”, are not authorized to be on the premises and thus are owed no duty of care. However, owners should not cause intentional personal injury or harm.
What Must Be Proved in a Successful Premises Liability Case?
In order to prove a premise liability case, you must establish that:
- The property was in an unsafe condition
- The unsafe condition caused the injury
- The owner or manager of the property knew or should have known about the unsafe condition
- The owner or manager of the property had reasonable opportunity to fix the unsafe condition or warn you and the public of the existence of the condition
