Premises Liability Lawyer in House Springs - 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 your injury required extensive medical care, you may have a case against the property owner. 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. If you are bruised, and the injury is very minor, your case may not be worth pursuing to a legal degree.

2. Should the owner have known about the dangerous area? Was the area taped off? Negligence, or a lack of action is required typically. 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 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 House Springs 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 House Springs 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 House Springs 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 House Springs premises liability lawyer could help people with their case, regardless of what class of visitor they are.
