Premises Liability Lawyer in Creve Coeur - Can I sue?

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

1. Did you have to go to the hospital or see a doctor because of the accident? If you had to go to the hospital to get care, you might be able to pursue a lawsuit. Legally pursuable injuries include broken bones, surgery, dislocated back, damaged limbs, and more. If you weren't injured in the accident, you cannot pursue a claim. If you are bruised, and the injury is very minor, your case may not be worth pursuing to a legal degree.

2. Was the owner made aware, but did nothing to remedy the dangerous area? Was the area taped off? For the case to move forward, there has to have been a level of negligence. If a floor was wet, and a warning sign was not posted, then the building owner can be held liable for the injuries. If there was a notice given of the danger, and you were still injured, your case may be more difficult.

Negligence and severity can be hard to determine, and if you need help, call our Premises Liability Lawyers in Creve Coeur immediately. We want to speak to you about your case to make sure you get the care and recover you need.

Relevant Statutes in a Creve Coeur 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 Creve Coeur 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 Creve Coeur premises liability lawyer could help people with their case, regardless of what class of visitor they are.
