The Duty to Exercise Care
In Arkansas, property owners are required to provide something called duty
to exercise care to all individuals welcome to their property. Simply
put, the duty to exercise care is the responsibility to provide safe conditions
on the premises. When they do not, and someone welcome to the property
is hurt, they are responsible for any resulting injury.
Legitimate premises liability suits need to demonstrate the following:
- That the property owner owed the victim the duty to exercise care
- That the owner had reasonable time to address any dangerous conditions
and did not
- That those dangerous conditions directly caused the victim's injury
There are different kinds of visitors that can be involved in these kinds
of claims. "Invitees" (customers, patrons) and "licensees"
(social guests) are often owed the duty to exercise care. Trespassers
usually are not. Some exceptions, depending on the circumstances, may
be made for child trespassers.

"Slip and fall" cases are the most common type of premises liability
claim, but these cases can involve literally any circumstances of dangerous
conditions on a property, including improper lighting, security, animal
control, and other factors. No matter what factors your case entails,
our team is ready to assess the circumstances of your injury and, if needed,
