There are many forms of premises liability for which an owner or operator can be charged. Owner and/or operators are responsible for any accidents that occur or injuries that happen while on their property. Some of the most common claims are slip and fall accidents. One must prove the property owner or operator could have prevented the accident through better safety measures.
What is Premises Liability In Michigan?
Premises liability in Michigan is essentially a negligence case against a property owner for damage caused upon the owner’s property. So, the normal elements of negligence (duty, breach of the duty, causation and damages) must be proved by a plaintiff for a successful claim. What does that mean? It means that all property owners (whether the property is residential or commercial) must act reasonably in protecting people who come upon their property. If they fail to act reasonably, they have breached their duty. Finally, the failure to act reasonably must cause injury. In premises liability cases, determining the scope of a duty owed to other people becomes a major issue because it sets the bar for how much must be done to protect those other people.
What Duty is Owed?
One who is on the property of another person is classified as one of the following: invitee, licensee and trespasser.
Invitee: An invitee is a person who goes upon the property of another person and will confer a pecuniary benefit upon that person. So, for example, customers at a store are invitees because the store is benefitted. Property owners owe a high duty of care to invitees. They must make reasonable efforts to warn of hidden dangers, to keep the premises safe, and to regularly inspect the premises.
Licensee: Licensees are individuals with permission to enter onto the land of another person. These are usually social guests. The duty owed to licensees is not as high as the duty owed to an invitee. Property owners are only liable if they knew or should have known of a hidden danger upon their land, failed to exercise reasonable care by warning of the hidden danger, and the licensee did not know (or was not reasonably expected to discover) the danger.
Trespasser: Finally, trespassers are those who enter upon the land of another person without permission. The duty owed to trespassers is not high. Gross negligence is required to hold a property owner liable.
