Business Invitee: This is a person invited onto the property for the benefit of the owner or tenant. Examples include a customer in a retail store, someone attending a concert, a patron in a store parking lot or someone enjoying an amusement pier ride.
Licensee or guest: This is someone at a property who is not there for the benefit of the owner. Examples include a social guest at someone’s home or a person walking along a sidewalk.
Trespasser: This includes a person who does not have permission to be on the property such as a burglar, or someone who enters a property marked “No Trespassing.”
