Arizona Premises Liability Laws

Property owners are responsible for making sure their grounds are safe for the people who will be on their property, and when they don’t do that, their visitors can be seriously injured if they get into an accident. According to Arizona premises liability law, there are three classes of people who can be on your property and different levels of responsibility for their safety.

Those classes of people are:

  • Invitees. These types of visitors are those who have been invited onto the premises. For example, a customer on a business owner’s property is considered an invitee, and a tenant of an apartment is an invitee. These types of visitors are protected, and property owners should reasonably foresee any dangers that an invitee might encounter and be harmed by.
  • Licensees. Licensees are awarded similar rights to invitees when they’re on someone else’s property. While they weren’t explicitly invited, they are allowed to be on the property even though they’re not benefiting the business or landowner. Examples of licensees are a utility worker or a neighbor who decided to stop by unannounced.
  • Trespassers. These types of visitors are not awarded the same protections as the two above because they are on the land illegally. A trespasser would be someone breaking into a business or home without the legal right to be there. If they are injured on dangerous property, they cannot sue because they weren’t allowed on the property in the first place.

One of the biggest factors that goes into premises liability is that the owner should have known about the danger on their property but fails to inform any visitors of the danger. If the property owner claims that they didn’t know about the danger, that still might not be enough to say they’re not responsible for the injuries of visitors.
