Arizona Laws for Premises Liability

One of the most important aspects of your case will be your lawyer consulting Arizona’s laws surrounding premises liability. In those laws, the status of you as a visitor on the property will determine whether or not you were at fault, or if the other party can be held accountable for the injuries that you’ve endured.

If you were legally on the premises, then the property owner was likely responsible for your safety, however if you were there illegally, you might actually be at fault for what happened to you. Here are the different classifications of visitors according to Arizona law so you and your lawyer can decide which category you fall under:

  • Invitee. This type of visitor has been explicitly invited onto the property. With invitees, property owners are responsible to make safe any known hazards on the premises, or should seek out any dangerous condition they reasonably should know about and make them safe.
  • Licensee. A licensee is owed slightly less diligence than an invitee might, but still is owed safety. Property owners don’t necessarily need to seek out dangerous conditions, but they do need to make safe or make visitors aware of any hazards on their property.
  • Trespasser. Trespassers are on the property illegally. This means that they are typically not owed any kind of safety on the property because they are not welcome. The only time they might be able to recover damages is if they are intentionally harmed by the property owner.

Premises liability laws can be confusing—you likely don’t know which type of visitor classification you fall under, which is why you need the help of our Tempe, AZ premises liability attorney. We’ll answer all your questions so you can feel confident in your claim.
