Premises Liability Lawyer in Montgomery City - 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 see a doctor, or if your accident required surgery, you most likely have a case. Usually, these types of injuries will be broken bones, a dislocated back, sprained ankles or limbs, etc. 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. Was the building owner acting negligently? Were you aware of the Hazard? Negligence is key to most premises liability 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 there was a sign, and it was easily noticeable, your accident may be harder to recover from.

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 Montgomery City immediately. We can help you determine the specifics of your case.

Relevant Statutes in a Montgomery City Premises Liability Case

In any slip and fall case, it is crucial to determine a person's status when they are on a piece of property because property owners have different obligations to different groups. The three classifications are: invitees, licensees, and trespassers.

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