Premises Liability Lawyer in Dalton City - 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 seek medical care, and the care was extensive, you may have a case. How do you know if you were seriously hurt? Surgery, broken bones, back issues, or injured limbs are considered serious issues. To have a legal claim, you must have been injured as a result of the dangerous condition. Minor bruising and injuries that don't require medical attention may not be feasible as cases.

2. Should the owner have known about the dangerous area? Was there a sign making you aware of the potential danger? Negligence, or a lack of action is required typically. 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 sign, and it was easily noticeable, your accident may be harder to recover from.

If you need help determining the severity of your claim, or help to determine if there was negligence, call our Premises Liability Lawyers in Dalton City immediately. We want to speak with you regarding the details of your case and see how we can help.

Relevant Statutes in a Dalton City Premises Liability Case

Your legal status to be on the property is going to determine your recovery potential in the case. Invitees, Licensees, and Trespassers are the three main classifications.

Invitees in Dalton City 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 Dalton City premises liability lawyer could help people with their case, regardless of what class of visitor they are.
