  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.  However, in situations where the possessor knows of potential trespassers,  he or she must give reasonable warning for dangerous conditions, but only for artificial conditions, and only if the condition is not obvious.
