Premises Liability Lawyer in Fredericktown - 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 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. If you weren't injured in the accident, you cannot pursue a claim. 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? Were you aware of the Hazard? Negligence is key to most premises liability 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.

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

Relevant Statutes in a Fredericktown 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. Invitees, Licensees, and Trespassers are the three main classifications.

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