Premises Liability/Slip and Fall Archives

Do property owners owe a duty of care to visitors?

Whenever you enter on to another's property in Covington, your likely expectation is that the property is responsible for your safety while you are there. Of course, you are still expected to exercise sound judgment and avoid any reckless behavior (as such negligence might absolve the property owner of liability even if you are injured while on their land). Yet generally speaking, it may be reasonable to expect that a property owner has prepared their land in such a way that it presents no danger to visitors. 

Which safety responsibilities fall to my landlord?

Opportunities to get hurt exist nearly anywhere you go. You can slip on a spill at the grocery store or trip in your office parking lot. While you know that property owners are responsible for providing a safe place for their patrons to shop or work, you may wonder if your landlord has the same liabilities. The home you rent should be a safe place, but who should take the steps to keep it safe?
