How Premises Liability Works

Just like in other states, premises liability claims in Kentucky revolve around the concept of "duty of care." Duty of care is the responsibility property owners have to provide a reasonably safe environment for those welcome on their property.

For a successful premises liability claim, the plaintiff must prove:

  • That the property owner owed them duty of care
  • That the dangerous conditions were due to a lack of duty of care
  • That those dangerous conditions led directly to an injury

In these cases, it is also important to be qualified as a "type" of visitor who is owed duty of care. In these cases, invitees and licensees (customers and personal guests, respectively) are commonly owed duty of care, while trespassers are not.
