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.

the lack of a safe and hazard-free environment. Some of the most common
accidents covered in premises liability cases include:

of maintenance and safety you may have a case and be entitled to
