Your Legal Status and the Duty of Care in Texas

Premises liability is built upon the duty of care of the property owner. Essentially, the duty of care represents the responsibility of the property owner to provide a safe environment for their visitors. However, such responsibility differs depending on the type of visitor that enters their property.

In the state of Texas, there are three different types of visitors and legal statuses:

  • Licensee – This individual enters the property by permission of the owner, but without an explicit invitation. With a licensee, the owner’s duty of care is to prevent injury and inform the licensee of the unsafe conditions that exist on the property.
  • Invitee – This individual enters the property by invitation or does so for the purpose of commerce, such as a customer or tenant. With an invitee, it is the property owner’s responsibility to ensure the highest standard of care. The owner must ensure that the property is safe for the use of an invitee.
  • Trespasser – This individual enters the property without permission or invitation of the owner. With a trespasser, the owner’s duty of care is only to abstain from causing injury by intentional force or conduct.

In some cases, when a child has been drawn to the property due to dangerous feature, the owner could still be held liable, even if the child was trespassing. This is called the attractive nuisance doctrine. In every case, it is important to determine which category you belong to and, with the help of a knowledgeable attorney, determine your legal status on the property.
