Premises Liability Lawyer in Jacksonville - 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 go to the hospital to get care, you might be able to pursue a lawsuit. Legally pursuable injuries include broken bones, surgery, dislocated back, damaged limbs, and more. If you weren't injured in the accident, you cannot pursue 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 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 aren't sure about the circumstances of your claim, or if the building owner did act negligently and you were hurt, call our Premises Liability Lawyers in Jacksonville immediately. We want to speak with you regarding the details of your case and see how we can help.

Relevant Statutes in a Jacksonville Premises Liability Case

Determining whether or not you have a premises liability case is going to depend on your legal status on the premises. The three classifications are: invitees, licensees, and trespassers.

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