Your Legal Status Makes a Difference in Premises Liability Claims
Florida law follows basic common law rules classifying an injury victim’s status on property. Our courts use these classifications to determine whether you have a valid premises liability claim.
An invitee is a person who is invited onto property. This does not require a written invitation. Rather, an invitation may be express or implied. For example, receiving an invitation by hand out, mail, or email is an example of an express request for your attendance. However, businesses and stores are open to everyone. So, they informally invite customers just by opening their doors for people to purchase goods or services. Accordingly, when someone suffers injuries, then premises liability may result.
Similar to invitees, a social guest—also known as a licensee—refers to someone who is on property for his own purpose with a property owner’s consent. For example, someone attending a party at a private home is a social guest.
In either case, whether you are are an invitee or social guest, a property owner may face a valid claim for your injuries.
Premises Liability Claims Often Fail If You’re Trespassing
Trespassers are people who enter property without an invitation, permission, or other right to do so. Often, postings warn trespassers to stay off property. Moreover, trespassers usually cannot pursue premises liability claims if they suffer injury.
However, children may trespass and still pursue premises liability claims. For example, certain property features or conditions attract children. Our courts look at whether property triggers a child’s sense of exploration. Accordingly, in these attractive nuisance cases, property owners may be liable for child injuries.
