PREMISES LIABILITY: WHAT SECURITY PROFESSIONALS SHOULD KNOW!
Christopher Staley, a partner with Sanders Warren & Russell LLP, will discuss premises liability elements and how security professionals can mitigate those risks.
Premises liability law governs personal injury claims arising from an injury on an organization or individual’s property. Property owners aren’t responsible in every circumstance; however, premises liability law dictates the circumstances under which they can be held legally liable if things go wrong. Premises liability law establishes the obligations property owners have to others, as well as the types of compensation victims may be eligible for. If an individual desires to pursue a legal claim for damages, premises liability law will govern the lawsuit. Security professionals should understand the basic elements necessary to prove negligence and how to mitigate the risk associated to this type of liability.
Lunch is included with the registration.
