Occupiers’ liability cases result from injuries suffered while on someone’s property. Injuries commonly result from dangerous premises, lack of signage, lack of supervision, hazardous ice, and wet surfaces. Many of these injuries are of the “slip and fall” variety.
According to the Occupiers’ Liability Act, the occupiers’ duty concerning the premises includes:
- An occupier of premises owes a duty to take such care as in all the circumstances of the case is reasonable to see that persons entering on the premises, and the property brought on the premises by those persons are reasonably safe while on the premises.
- The duty of care provided for in subsection (1) applies whether the danger is caused by the condition of the premises or by an activity carried out on the premises.
