Premises Liability Lawyer in Linn - 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 seek medical care, and the care was extensive, you may have a case. Usually, these types of injuries will be broken bones, a dislocated back, sprained ankles or limbs, etc. If you weren't injured in the accident, you cannot pursue a claim. Bruising, or minor injuries may not be worth legally pursuing.

2. Did the owner know about the danger and not fix it? Were you aware of the Hazard? 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.

Negligence and severity can be hard to determine, and if you need help, call our Premises Liability Lawyers in Linn immediately. We want to speak with you regarding the details of your case and see how we can help.

Relevant Statutes in a Linn Premises Liability Case

Your legal status to be on the property is going to determine your recovery potential in the case. The three classifications are: invitees, licensees, and trespassers.

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