Premises liability expert witness Fred Del Marva explains standard of care in premises liability cases.
It is common knowledge that premises owners are not the insurers or guarantors of their invitees’ safety. The duty imposed on them is to provide a safe and secure environment, and to provide reasonable care.
This duty is achieved by requiring premises owners and operators to develop and implement policies, procedures, and protocols that will either prevent or deter what is reasonably foreseeable.
Operational practices, including policies, procedures, and protocols that might be reasonable for one business or location might not be adequate for others.
