What Classification of Visitor Were You?

After getting hurt on someone else’s property, you might decide to take legal action against the negligent party to recover compensation for the damages you incurred. When you get legal counsel, they’ll inform you that your status on the property is one of the most important aspects of your claim. Depending on your visitor classification according to the law, your claim could be thrown out or not as successful as you might have initially assumed.

According to Arizona premises liability law, these are the three classifications of visitors on someone else’s property:

  • Invitee. When you’ve explicitly invited onto the premises for the benefit of both you and the property owner, you’re considered an invitee. You’re afforded the highest level of care, meaning the property owner should have made safe any hazards on the premises that could harm you, or they should have warned you of the dangers.
  • Licensee. Licensees are also allowed on the property, however they’re not explicitly invited. Property owners still owe licensees a duty of care, but not as high a level as an invitee.
  • Trespasser. When someone trespasses on property, it means they’re illegally there. This means that the property owner likely doesn’t owe them any care if they’re hurt on the property. The only time the property owner could be at fault is if they purposefully injured the trespasser.

Your ability to recover damages will heavily rely on how you’re classified as a visitor on the premises. You might not be sure which you fall under, which is why it’s so helpful to have a Gilbert, AZ premises liability attorney on your side. They’ll be able to help you determine what your status was while on the property, and what level of care you were afforded.

All of this can be incredibly complicated and impossible to figure out on your own. Having lawyers who answer all your questions is important because then you can fully understand your situation and what you’re owed for your damages.
