What is the Duty of Care of a Commercial Landowner?
A commercial land owner is a business. If you are shopping in a business or if you're in a restaurant, you've essentially been invited into the premises and are known as a business invitee. A commercial land owner has the responsibility to locate any dangers on their property and make you aware of those dangers. If they don't and you are injured, and you're injured by stepping in a pothole, or slipping and falling on wet ground, you may have the right to bring a lawsuit for any injuries that you've sustained.
