Premises liability is not just about slipping and falling on someone else's property and then suing them. There are many factors that contribute to a viable premises liability case. Property owners owe a duty of care to provide a safe, hazard-free environment for people who enter their property, but not the same duty to a paying client than to a trespasser.
