Premises Liability Lawyer in North St. Louis County - 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 your injury required extensive medical care, you may have a case against the property owner. 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. small injuries such as cuts, or injuries that don't require medical attention may be too costly to pursue legally.
2. Was the building owner acting negligently? 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 there was a notice given of the danger, and you were still injured, your case may be more difficult.
Negligence and severity can be hard to determine, and if you need help, call our Premises Liability Lawyers in North St. Louis County immediately. We want to speak to you about your case to make sure you get the care and recover you need.
Relevant Statutes in a North St. Louis County 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 North St. Louis 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 North St. Louis County premises liability lawyer could help people with their case, regardless of what class of visitor they are.
