Premises liability law is the law that covers injuries that happen on a property. It may cover injuries that happened because of things like defective staircases, unsafe handrails, unsafe lighting, or other unsafe conditions.
In general, there are two types of premises liability laws. The first type is referred to as “duty to warn.” This type of law requires that the property owner warn people about any potential hazards on the property. The second type of law is referred to as “duty to inspect.” This type of law states that the property owner must inspect the property and remove any hazards or defects.
