3.9-18  Defendant Does Not Guarantee Safety

Revised to January 1, 2008

It is not the law that the plaintiff is entitled to compensation merely because (he/she) is injured while on the premises controlled by another.  The defendant is not required to guarantee the safety of all persons on the premises.  Rather the defendant is only liable for the resulting injuries if the plaintiff meets the burden to prove the necessary elements of a defective premises claim as I now outline them for you.
