What are Kentucky's premises liability laws?
In the state of Kentucky, if you have been injured on someone else's property, you must be able to prove negligence on the part of the property owner in accordance with the state's premises liability laws. In order to win a successful negligence liability case in Kentucky, you must be able to provide evidence that proves the following:
- The property owner had a duty to protect you, as the plaintiff, while on their property.
- The property owner did not serve that duty.
- The failure to serve that duty was the cause of your injuries.
- This failure could have been prevented through reasonable actions on the part of the property owner.
- Finally, you must be able to show or otherwise document the injuries that you suffered.
These laws exist because property owners have a responsibility to protect anyone who is considered an invitee. According to Kentucky law, an invitee is a person who is invited to enter onto someone's property, either expressly or implicitly. The most common example of this is a business customer who is implicitly invited onto the property of a business owner.
Once on the property, the property owner owes the invitee a duty of reasonable care for their safety. As such, the property owner must warn and protect the invitee from any dangers that may or may not be easily seen by the invitee.
