Premises liability is the area of law that governs the legal duties a landowner owes to people on their property. The duty of care owed by an owner of land to those on the premises depends on the legal status of the person with regard to the property. In Florida, a person on the land of another is categorized as either a Trespasser, Licensee, or Invitee. How one is categorized can make or break your case. For example, a burglar is a Trespasser, a friend visiting your home is a Licensee, and a store customer is an Invitee.
Premises liability cases are very complex and have many nuances. You need an experienced attorney to help you navigate your case.
