Property owners in or around Oregon have a degree of responsibility to the people on their property.
Premises liability is generally defined as the liability a property owner might have for certain torts that occur on the real property.
Whether or not the person had a right to be on the premises bears significantly on whether the property owner is liable for any injuries the person suffered.
For instance, a retail store has a higher degree of care for customers in its store, but a very low degree of care for a burglar who breaks in.
Property owners with an "attractive nuisance," such as a swimming pool, are responsible for making sure the nuisance is secure from children.
