Landowner duty

Definition

The proper test to be applied for determining the liability of a landowner is whether in the management of his property he has acted as a reasonable man given the probability of injury to others, and, although the plaintiff’s status as a trespasser, licensee, or invitee may have some bearing on the question of the landowner’s liability, this status alone is not determinative.
