Premises Liability Lawyer in Pulaski 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 you had to go to the hospital to get care, you might be able to pursue a lawsuit. Legally pursuable injuries include broken bones, surgery, dislocated back, damaged limbs, and more. You have to be injured for the claim to proceed. If you are bruised, and the injury is very minor, your case may not be worth pursuing to a legal degree.
2. Was the building owner acting negligently? Was there a sign making you aware of the potential danger? Negligence is required for most 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 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.
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 Pulaski County immediately. We want to speak with you regarding the details of your case and see how we can help.
Relevant Statutes in a Pulaski 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. There are three main classifications of people in a slip and fall accident: invitees, licensees, and trespassers.
Invitees in Pulaski 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 Pulaski County premises liability lawyer could help people with their case, regardless of what class of visitor they are.
