Proving Negligence in a Premises Liability Case

According to Texas law, there are three types of people who may recover compensation in premises liability suits: invitees, licensees, and trespassers. An invitee (customers/business patrons/owner’s employees) is an individual who enters the premises with the expressed or implied invitation or permission of the owner. An owner has the highest level of duty towards an invitee, requiring reasonable care to make sure all hazards are fixed and all operations are executed in a safe manner.

A licensee (social guest/salesman) is an individual who enters the property with the expressed permission or consent of the owner for his or her own benefit. The property owner is responsible for warning the licensee about potential hazards present within the premises in a reasonable manner. However, the owner is not obligated to fix or inspect known dangers.

A trespasser is a person who enters the premises without expressed or implied permission from the owner. Property owners are not obligated to warn trespassers of dangers on the premises, unless the victim is a child or if the property is “booby trapped” with the intent to injure possible trespassers.

Common examples of premises liability accidents include the following:
