Premises Liability: The Impact of the “Going or Coming” Rule on Tort Liability – The Briefing

Welcome to The Briefing – a legal podcast by Smith Freed Eberhard. We will provide insight and analysis on new Oregon and Washington case law, litigation innovation and technology, the insurance marketplace, and firm news.

In this week’s episode, Justin Wickizer, Director of Legal Operations, discusses Smith Freed Eberhard’s latest Legal Alert, “Premises Liability: The Impact of the “Going or Coming” Rule on Tort Liability.” In this opinion, the Oregon Court of Appeals found that a slip-and-fall injury in an icy parking lot was covered by workers’ compensation. Notably, the parking lot was not owned by the employer, but rather considered a common area for which the employer’s landlord had “sole control” over. Regardless, the court found the injury compensable because the employer had the ability to request maintenance or repairs of the parking lot.
