Premises Liability Lawyer in Herculaneum - Can I sue?

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

1. Are you injured? If your injury required extensive medical care, you may have a case against the property owner. 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. Bruising, or minor injuries may not be worth legally pursuing.

2. Should the owner have known about the dangerous area? Did you see a sign stating the area was dangerous? Negligence is required for most claims. If a floor was wet, and a warning sign was not posted, then the building owner can be held liable for the injuries. 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.

Negligence and severity can be hard to determine, and if you need help, call our Premises Liability Lawyers in Herculaneum 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 Herculaneum Premises Liability Case

Determining whether or not you have a premises liability case is going to depend on your legal status on the premises. There are three main classifications of people in a slip and fall accident: invitees, licensees, and trespassers.

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