As an experienced Media PA Slip and Fall Lawyer, I often speak to clients about the differences in the duty owed by a private landowner and a business property.

  • Premises liability claims – also referred to as slip and fall claims – raise questions about the difference between the liability of a private landowner on whose property one is a guest and that of a business on whose property one is a potential customer.
  • As the guest of a private landowner, you are a licensee, and the landowner must warn you about and protect you from concealed, dangerous conditions of which he has knowledge.
  • that the private land owner’s lower standard differs from that imposed on a business owner who has a duty to not only to warn and protect you from dangers, but to seek out and remedy those dangers.
