Premises Liability Lawyer in Murphysboro - 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 you had to see a doctor, or if your accident required surgery, you most likely have a case. How do you know if you were seriously hurt? Surgery, broken bones, back issues, or injured limbs are considered serious issues. Most importantly, if you're not injured, you don't have a claim. Bruising, or minor injuries may not be worth legally pursuing.

2. Should the owner have known about the dangerous area? Was there a sign making you aware of the potential danger? 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 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.

Negligence and severity can be hard to determine, and if you need help, call our Premises Liability Lawyers in Murphysboro immediately. We can help you.

Relevant Statutes in a Murphysboro 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. The three classifications are: invitees, licensees, and trespassers.

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