What Duty of Care Does the Homeowner Have?
The homeowner's duty of care depends on the victim's status on that property. The victim can be a:
- Business invitee who is there for the mutual economic benefit of both parties
- Social visitor who is there by invitation and not for the owner's economic benefit
- Illegal trespasser who is on the premises without permission
Generally, the property owner owes the highest duty of care to the business invitee, and the lowest to the trespasser. For more detailed information about the homeowner duty of care, contact a lawyer.
