Premises Liability Lawyer in Dexter - 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 you had to see a doctor, or if your accident required surgery, you most likely have a case. Legally pursuable injuries include broken bones, surgery, dislocated back, damaged limbs, and more. Most importantly, if you're not injured, you don't have a claim. small injuries such as cuts, or injuries that don't require medical attention may be too costly to pursue legally.

2. Was the building owner acting negligently? Did you see a sign stating the area was dangerous? Negligence is required for most claims. Spills on floors, dangerous stairs, holes in floors, parking lots covered with ice, and other types of hazards can cause injuries, and properties owners can be held liable for those 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 Dexter 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 Dexter Premises Liability Case

In any slip and fall case, it is crucial to determine a person's status when they are on a piece of property because property owners have different obligations to different groups. There are three main classifications of people in a slip and fall accident: invitees, licensees, and trespassers.

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