Can a trespasser file a premises liability claim?

In some cases, yes. People who trespass on property without the owner’s permission are usually waiving their right to file a claim if they are injured. However, property owners may have some responsibility for known dangers, such as creeks or aggressive dogs, if they have reason to believe that people are likely to trespass on their property. In addition, adult property landowners owe a certain level of care to children who may trespass on their land.
