When a Business Can Be Held Responsible for a Slip or Fall at their Premises

Virginia & North Carolina personal injury lawyer Eric Washburn talks about when a business may be liable for your harms and losses if you suffer a slip and fall injury at their premises. A big issue of whether a business owner can be held liable for an injury is the legal classification of the injured person at the time of the injury. There are three types of visitors that are used in the analysis of premises liability: trespasser, licensee, and invitee. The duties and responsibilities of a landowner are vastly different depending on the status of the person injured.
