Home Depot Premises Liability Laws and Store Owner Operator Responsibility for My Injuries

Land owner and business operators like Home Depot and Lowe’s liability to its patrons vary greatly depending upon the classification of the victim.

Main Causes of accident in Warehouse stores:

  • Failure to rectify conditions known to be a hazard to shoppers
  • Failure of employees to clean up or properly stack goods in the store
  • Failure to maintain clean dry floors leading to slip and fall accidents
  • Sawdust on floor on store ground leading to slip and fall accidents
  • Wet floors improperly unmarked as wet
  • Failure to warn of dangerous conditions

Generally, all visitors fall into one of three 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. In most instances a patron who arrives to a store seeking to purchase a product is regarded under California Premises Liability laws as an Invitee. Licensee: Any individual who enters the premises at the owner or possessors consent for a non business or commercial purpose.  The most common example is a social guest.  In order to recover as a licensee, a victim must establish (all three):
  1. The owner or possessor knew or should have known of the dangerous condition, and should have known that it created an unreasonable risk of harm, and likewise should have known that the plaintiff would fail to discover the dangerous condition
  2. The owner or possessor did not make the condition safe or failed to warn the licensee of the condition
  3. The licensee did not know of the dangerous condition or the risks involved.
Trespassers: Unlike an invitee or licensee, a trespasser enters premises without the property owner or possessor’s consent.  Generally, no duty is owed to a trespasser.
