Premises liability cases are an all too common issue that are faced when an invited individual is injured in some way, while on the property of another person. This property can be both private or public and the individual may have been invited there for any number of reasons. When the property is public, that means that it is open without a formal invitation. It may be open for public access all the time or during certain hours of operation. A public place may include a library, park or even a store. Stores open their doors to consumers to come purchase their product and part of their responsibility is that they will offer an area that is safe. They are responsible to keep up with maintenance and make sure that any area that the public has access to will be safe from all reasonable dangers. What is considered reasonable can vary and this will need to be assessed in each case.
