Open and Obvious Hazards

When on another person's property, you should not be unknowingly exposed to hazards that could result in serious injury or death. Tort laws require property owners to post warnings of any hidden dangers that exist on their properties; failure to do so may result in a premises liability lawsuit.

If you have been injured while on another person or business' property, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses.

What are Open and Obvious Hazards?

In tort law, open and obvious hazards are dangers that could be easily detected by a person of average intelligence if they were to casually inspect the premises. Regardless of what type of property an open and obvious hazard is on, people are expected to notice (and avoid) the risks of an open and obvious hazard.

Conversely, however, hidden dangers are hazards that may not be easily detected upon casual inspection. These types of dangers must be accompanied by warnings signs that alert guests to the risk.

Regardless of a guest's status as invited, uninvited, or a member of the public, property owners are responsible for ensuring that their property is safe for all.
