What Is Premises Liability in Gulfport?
Premises liability is a type of personal injury law that deals with property owners and their duties to visitors on their premises. There are three types of visitors to Mississippi properties, and property owners do not owe each the same duty of care.
The three visitors to Mississippi properties are invitees, licensees, and trespassers. The duty of care owed to each visitor is generally as follows:
Invitees are typically retail customers on a premises by express or implied invitation of the owner. Owners and operators of businesses need to maintain a reasonably safe property for invitees;
Licensees are usually social guests or enter a property with the owner’s permission for their purposes. Owners owe licensees a duty to notify them of dangerous conditions that they know of or should know of; and
Trespassers enter a property without the owner’s permission or authorization. Owners owe trespassers little or no duty.
