The term "premises liability" refers to the liability of certain persons for injuries and damages to others arising from the ownership or possession of real property.

As in any other negligence action, the injured person must establish the following:

  1. The existence of a duty on the part of the defendant to use due care;
  2. A breach of this legal duty; and
  3. The breach as the proximate or legal cause of the resulting injury
Premises liability actions have traditionally involved "slip and fall" or "trip and fall" causes of action. Premises liability is not, however, limited to such causes of action and includes, among other things, construction accidents, dog bite cases, lead poisoning, defective and/or inoperative lighting, failure to warn of hazardous conditions, and injuries caused by the negligent or willful conduct of third persons on the premises involved.

In determining who is liable in a premises liability action, the crucial elements are ownership, possession, and control of the premises. The person who owns, possesses, or controls the premises is the one responsible for any injuries arising from a condition of the premises.
