Premises Liability

Louisville Premises Liability Lawyer

Injuries that occur on someone else's property often create premises liability cases. Casually, these are referred to as "slip and falls". However, injuries can occur in many ways other than slipping and falling. Customers are injured when business operators fail to protect them in many ways. Trips over unshelved inventory, parking lot maintenance issues and inappropriate behavior of employees are examples of other potential premises liability cases.

Kentucky Law defines everyone as either a trespasser, a licensee or a business invitee. A trespasser has very few rights with regard to injuries suffered on property. A licensee is allowed to be on the property but is not there to help generate profits. A good example is the FedEx delivery man. Most often, premises liability/slip and fall claims are made by business invitees. Invitees are on the property in an effort to generate profits. Customers are the best examples of invitees.

Not only must the business operator warn of known, hidden dangers, but must take reasonable and necessary steps to protect invitees. "Caution Wet Floor" or "Watch Your Step" signs are examples of warning of known, hidden dangers. Hourly safety checks, restricting aisles that are being stocked with inventory and moping up spills are examples of taking reasonable steps necessary to protect customers.
