What Is My Legal Status as a Visitor?

The various legal statuses of visitors can overlap quite a bit, often making it confusing to determine what status you may fall under. The experienced personal injury team at FVF Law has a deep understanding of premises liability cases, and can help you determine what your legal rights are.

For example, you may fall under one of the following:

Invitees are anyone who has been invited onto the property in question. The invitation does not need to be explicit; for example, customers have an implied invitation to visit a store. The invitation suggests that reasonable steps have been taken to ensure the safety of the premises.

Social guests are people who are welcome visitors to the property and are usually invited. They are distinguished from invitees in a few technical ways, as the land owner does not have the same obligations to assure premises safety.

Licensees refers to people who enter the property for their own purpose rather than for the purpose of the land owner.

Trespassers can be anyone who does not have any right or permission to enter a property. There is no implication that the landowner has assured the property’s safety for these parties.

If you’ve been injured on someone else’s property, you owe it to yourself to pursue just compensation. Call FVF Law today for skilled counsel from premises liability attorneys in Austin.
