In Utah are my injuries covered by the property owner’s insurance if I didn’t have permission to be there?

In Utah, a property owner generally has a legal obligation to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition for visitors who have permission to be on the property. This legal duty of care is known as “premises liability.”

However, if you were trespassing on the property without permission at the time of your injury, the property owner’s insurance may not cover your injuries. In Utah, property owners are generally not liable for injuries sustained by trespassers, unless the property owner intentionally or recklessly caused the injury.

There are some exceptions to this general rule, such as if the property owner knew or should have known that trespassers frequently entered the property, and failed to take reasonable steps to warn or protect against them.

If you were injured while trespassing on a property in Utah, it’s important to consult with a personal injury attorney to understand your legal rights and options. They can help you determine whether the property owner may be liable for your injuries and whether you have a valid legal claim for compensation.
