Premises Liability Lawyer in Lincoln County - 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 you had to see a doctor, or if your accident required surgery, you most likely 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. Minor bruising and injuries that don't require medical attention may not be feasible as cases.

2. Did the owner know about the danger and not fix it? 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. 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 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 Lincoln County immediately. We can help you determine the specifics of your case.

Relevant Statutes in a Lincoln County Premises Liability Case

In a slip and fall or premises liability case, determining the legal status of the person hurt is important to determine if there is a recovery owed. Invitees, Licensees, and Trespassers are the three main classifications.

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