Invitees are generally owed a duty of reasonable care by the owner of the premises. If the owner of the premises violates that duty of reasonable care, then the owner may be liable. The invitee is likewise expected to exercise reasonable care in looking out for dangers that may be open and obvious on the premises. If that duty of being on the lookout for open and obvious dangers is violated then the injured party may not be able to recover for any injuries suffered on the premises.
An invitee also owes a duty of reasonable care to be om the lookout for dangerous conditions. For instance if there are wet floor signs in an area of a mall and the invitee walks through the signs into the area of the wet floor that is not reasoanble care. That may be a bar to any claim of the invitee. The concept of duty goes both ways. The invitee has certain duties. The property owner has certain duties.
