The type of visitor you are to a property determines the degree of care a property owner is obligated to provide. You may be a:
- Business invitee. If you are a client, customer, or potential client or customer of a business you can expect that a property owner will be actively vigilant in looking for dangers and either fixing them or warning you of them.
- Social licensees. If you visit someone’s home with permission as a visitor or guest who is not visiting on business, you can expect that a property owner will warn you of any known dangers and will not make any hazards more dangerous.
- Trespassers. These visitors have fewer rights, but property owners are expected not to create hazardous conditions or make dangerous conditions worse if they know that trespassing is possible on a property. Property owners do owe some responsibility to children who trespass, however. For example, if a property owner has a pool and fails to secure that pool he or she may be held liable if a child trespasses on the property and is injured in the water.
