Premises Liability Lawyer in Hannibal - Can I sue?

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

1. Did your accident require medical attention? If you had to seek medical care, and the care was extensive, you may have a case. Legally pursuable injuries include broken bones, surgery, dislocated back, damaged limbs, and more. 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. Was the owner made aware, but did nothing to remedy the dangerous area? Did you see a sign stating the area was dangerous? For the case to move forward, there has to have been a level of negligence. 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 a sign was posted, and you disregarded the warning and subsequently caused the injury yourself, your slip and fall claim will be weakened and you will have a more difficult time recovering damages.

If you need help determining the severity of your claim, or help to determine if there was negligence, call our Premises Liability Lawyers in Hannibal 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 Hannibal 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 Hannibal 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 Hannibal premises liability lawyer could help people with their case, regardless of what class of visitor they are.
