A Duty of Care is Owed to Visitors

Premises liability cases tend to hinge on whether a property owner exhibits negligence by not providing the necessary care with respect to the ownership and maintenance of the premises.

Property owners and operators have a duty of care that they must provide to all who enter the premises. If there is a breach in the duty of care and this causes an injury to occur, a premises liability case may be filed.
