Premises Liability Lawyer in Chesterfield - Can I sue?

There are a few factors that determine whether or not you should pursue a premises liability case.

1. Were you seriously hurt in the fall or accident? If your injury required extensive medical care, you may have a case against the property owner. How do you know if you were seriously hurt? Surgery, broken bones, back issues, or injured limbs are considered serious issues. You have to be injured for the claim to proceed. small injuries such as cuts, or injuries that don't require medical attention may be too costly to pursue legally.

2. Did the owner know about the danger and not fix it? Was the area taped off? Negligence is key to most premises liability claims. Wet floors with no signs, dangerously loose banisters, rubble on the floor, and other types of hazards that can cause injuries can make the owner of the property liable. If there was a notice given of the danger, and you were still injured, your case may be more difficult.

If you aren't sure about the circumstances of your claim, or if the building owner did act negligently and you were hurt, call our Premises Liability Lawyers in Chesterfield immediately. We want to speak with you regarding the details of your case and see how we can help.

Relevant Statutes in a Chesterfield Premises Liability Case

In a slip and fall or premises liability case, determining the legal status of the person hurt is important to determine if there is a recovery owed. The three classifications are: invitees, licensees, and trespassers.

Invitees in Chesterfield are defined in Bartel v. Central Markets, Inc. (Mo.App. 1995) as anyone who enters upon a premises with the express or implied consent of the possessor, and for some purpose of benefit or interest to the possessor or for the mutual benefit of both. Property owners have a duty to provide invitees with the highest standard of care by inspecting their property and fixing dangerous or hazardous conditions. In addition, property owners must disclose known dangerous conditions, as outlined in Harris v. Niehaus (Mo. banc. 1993), citing Restatement (2nd) Torts § 343 comment b.

Licensees are a person who is privileged to enter or remain on land only by virtue of the possessor’s consent, according to Restatement (2nd) Torts § 330; Harris, 875 S.W.2d at 225. Property owners only have a duty to warn licensees of a danger that the property owner knows about or should know about.

The last classification of people are trespassers. A trespasser—as defined by Restatement (2nd) Torts, § 329 (1965)—is a person who enters or remains upon land in the possession of another without a privilege to do so. Property owners generally are not liable for harm that caused to a trespasser. A Chesterfield premises liability lawyer could help people with their case, regardless of what class of visitor they are.
