Premises Liability Lawyer in Sikeston - 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. To have a legal claim, you must have been injured as a result of the dangerous condition. Bruising, or minor injuries may not be worth legally pursuing.

2. Should the owner have known about the dangerous area? Did you see a sign stating the area was dangerous? 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.

If you need help determining the severity of your claim, or help to determine if there was negligence, call our Premises Liability Lawyers in Sikeston immediately. We can help you.

Relevant Statutes in a Sikeston 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 Sikeston 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 Sikeston premises liability lawyer could help people with their case, regardless of what class of visitor they are.
