What is Premises Liability?

Premises liability is an area of personal injury law that involves dangerous conditions on someone else’s property. This could be a commercial property, such as a store or hotel, or it could be a private residence. If you are injured in a slip and fall accident, assaulted in a parking lot, or bitten by a dog, you may have a premises liability claim.

Common types of premises liability claims include:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Defective conditions on the property
  • Toxic fumes or chemicals
  • Swimming pool or hot tub accidents
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Animal attacks
  • Assaults

These are just a few examples of the types of claims that fall under the umbrella of premises liability. If you have been injured on someone else’s property, we encourage you to speak to an attorney about your rights and options.

Proving a Premises Liability Lawsuit in Minnesota

In Minnesota, to succeed in a premises liability lawsuit, you typically need to prove the following elements:

  1. Duty of care: You must establish that the property owner or occupier owed you a duty of care. This duty varies depending on your status as a visitor (invitee, licensee, or trespasser) on the premises.
  2. Breach of duty: You need to demonstrate that the property owner breached their duty of care by failing to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition or by failing to warn of known hazards.
  3. Causation: You must establish that the breach of duty directly caused your injury or damages. This involves showing a clear connection between the hazardous condition and your injury.
  4. Damages: You need to provide evidence of the injuries or losses you suffered as a result of the hazardous condition on the premises. This can include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related damages.

Depending on the circumstances, you may also need to prove that the property owner had actual or constructive notice of the dangerous condition but failed to address it within a reasonable timeframe.

The statute of limitations for filing a premises liability lawsuit is typically two years from the date of the injury or discovery of the injury. However, it's essential to consult with a legal professional to ensure compliance with any specific deadlines that may apply to your case.

Who is Liable for Your Injuries?

It is not always easy to determine who is liable for your injuries in a premises liability case. The truth is that there may be multiple parties who are responsible. For example, if you are injured in a slip-and-fall accident in a grocery store, the store owner, the store manager, and the cleaning company may all be responsible.

The following parties may be liable for your injuries:

  • The property owner
  • The property manager
  • The property tenant
  • Security company
  • Vendor
  • Manufacturer of a defective product
  • Construction company
  • Architect
  • Engineer
  • Another visitor
