An owner or person in control (“Owner”) of real estate can be liable for injury or death occurring on the real property. The duties owed by an Owner depend upon the status of the people on the Owner’s property. For example, an Owner’s duty to a person invited onto the Owner’s property to conduct business is greater than that owed to a mere trespasser. A jury can also find an owner responsible for injury or deatrh for several reasons, including the property’s use, the property’s condition, and the criminal actions of third parties on the property. The most common injuries falling under “premises liability” include are caused by and/or described as assault, slip-and-fall, falling boxes or debris, unexpected holes or pits, defective stairs, dangerous pools, electrocution, rape, and shootings.
