Establishing a Premises Liability Claim in Bucks County
Legally, there are three types of visitors to any property. These are invitees, licensees, and trespassers.
Under Pennsylvania law, a property owner, tenant, or store manager owes each of these three visitors a different duty of care.
The duty of care owed to each visitor is as follows:
- Invitees. Invitees are typically retail customers. Owners and operators of businesses need to maintain a reasonably safe property for invitees. Owners owe invitees the highest degree of care;
- Licensees. Licensees enter a property for their own purposes, not the owners’. Owners have to protect or notify them of dangerous conditions on the property that the owner knows of or should know of; and
- Trespassers. Trespassers enter a property without permission. Owners owe trespassers little to no duty. However, they may not intentionally hurt a trespasser.
A potential fourth type of visitor is a child. Special legal protections may apply to children. Therefore, if your child suffers injuries on someone else’s property, consult an experienced Bensalem premises liability attorney for help.
