In premises liability cases, open and obvious conditions are normally considered for the purpose of proportionate responsibility. However, in 2015, the Texas Supreme Court issued its opinion in Austin v. Kroger. This opinion is instructive on the concept of a premises owner’s duty when the condition is open and obvious to the claimant. This presentation covers the law on open and obvious conditions post-Austin­, and meeting the evidentiary burden to show the lack of duty in premises liability cases.
