Property owners in the United States are responsible for maintaining their premises in such a way that potential guests and visitors are not unnecessarily exposed to health and safety threats. Premises liability laws are in place to enforce this responsibility. Additionally, these laws ensure that property owners who expose others to injury risks can be held accountable for the impact that their negligence may have on the lives of injury victims.
