Premises liability laws apply to the owner or caretaker of a private home, a park, a hotel or a school -- any place where an individual or the public is invited. In a premises liability case, it must be shown that an injury resulted from negligence, meaning that the owner or property manager knew or should have known about a hazard, and did nothing to safeguard the visitor.
