When Is the Property Owner Liable?
Under Michigan premises liability law, property owners must maintain their property in a way that is reasonably safe and free of hazards or danger for those who visit. This means that, if the property owner or manager knows — or should have known — about a potentially unsafe situation, they must take quick action to correct it. If the owner or manager is unable to correct the problem reasonably quickly, he must do something to bring it to the attention of any visitors who might injure themselves. For example, he could rope the area off or place prominent signage in such a way that you can avoid the danger. If he failed to meet these standards, and someone gets hurt as a result, he may be liable for those injuries. It is important to note that the property owner is only liable if the injured party was an invitee (e.g., customer, a contractor working on the property) or licensee (e.g., social guest, someone who came in to use the restroom).
