Premises Liability

What Is Premises Liability?

Under the legal theory of premises liability, property owners may be liable for accidents and injuries that occur on their property. In Missouri and Illinois, the responsible party is not necessarily the landowner, but oftentimes the party who had possession or control of the property where the accident or injury occurred. If a landlord has leased a property to a tenant and the landlord does not maintain control of the property—as with shopping malls and many other businesses—the tenant may potentially be responsible for injuries to visitors on the portion of the property for which they are responsible.

  • Previous injuries and claims of the plaintiff or claimant
