Premises Liability – The Responsibility of the Property Owner Landlord:

Under the common law system of jurisprudence landlords and the managers of properties owe certain duties to members of the general public who enter their buildings. Determining which individual is owed a duty is predicated on the general status of that individual under the law. The common law system places all visitors into three general categories.

  • Invitee:  An invitee is owed the highest duty of care.  They are any individual who is either expressly or impliedly invited to another person’s premises for their mutual benefit.
  • Licensee: Any individual who enters the premises at the owner or possessors consent for a non business or commercial purpose.  The most common example of an invitee is a social guest.
  • Trespassers: Individuals who unlawfully enter a property without  the consent of the property owner. Generally no duty is owed to a trespasser.

Property owners responsibilities to invitees and licensee onto their property may including providing proper upkeep as well as routine maintenance of their elevators. Such responsibility must be carried out by trained professionals who have the knowledge base to properly identify and quickly fix any issues with elevators.

Product Liability Claim – Against Manufacturers: Another cause of action may be possible against manufacturers of elevator systems for the manufacturing of a defective product. Generally there are three distinct causes of action possible in a product liability case. (1) Defect in the design of the product (2) Defect in the manufacturing process of the product (3) Failure to warn or known dangers associated with the use of the product.
