Premise Liability

Premises liability cases can run the gamut from a simple slip and fall to inadequate security. A recent Kentucky Supreme Court decision altered the strategic defenses for a premise liability lawsuit. In Shelton v. Kentucky Easter Seals Society, Inc., 413 S.W.3d 901 (Ky. 2013), the Court modified the open and obvious doctrine, and practitioners are still assessing how best to handle premise liability cases in light of the change. Business invitees making premise liability claims now have a higher likelihood of making it to trial, as the question of whether a hazard was open and obvious is left for the jury.
