Premises Liability Law In Kentucky
Basic premises liability is based on a simple legal principle. When an individual or business owner invites members of the public onto their property, they owe those visitors a legal duty to keep the premises reasonably safe. This can be accomplished one of two ways:
- Repair potential hazards once they are discovered or reasonably should have been discovered
- Warn the public of the hazard
For example, a grocery store is responsible for keeping its floors free of water and debris, or at least putting up a warning sign to alert shoppers. This is true whether your fall occurred indoors or outdoors.
In some cases, landlords, hotels, universities and other property owners are also responsible for injuries suffered by residents and visitors on their property due to criminal activity and other reasons.
