Premises liability refers to the responsibility property owners bear should a guest become injured on their property. Depending on the circumstances, property owners can be held accountable for preventable accidents that occur on their property due to negligent maintenance, such as staircases that are not up to code, environmental hazards, wet or slick floors, inadequate structural engineering and more.
In many cases, security-related premises liability matters involve issues such as physical security standards and generally accepted security practices. In addition to any existing standards, crime statistics, event history, community standards and specific risk considerations play a part in determining whether an adverse event was foreseeable.
