Premises liability law: Keeping businesses safe for customers

When customers or clients enter business establishments, many customers think that a business must ensure that the property is 100 percent safe to prevent a customer from injury – but that is not necessarily the law in Virginia. Clients or customers of business establishments generally are considered “invitees.” While an “invitee” in Virginia has “the right to assume that the premises are reasonably safe for his or her visit” (Va. Model Jury Instruction 23.030), a business owner “does not guarantee an invitee’s safety” (Va. Model Jury Instruction 23.040).
