Premises Liability Lawyer in South 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 you have to go to the hospital or see a doctor because of the accident? 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. If you weren't injured in the accident, you cannot pursue a claim. small injuries such as cuts, or injuries that don't require medical attention may be too costly to pursue legally.

2. Should the owner have known about the dangerous area? Did you see a sign stating the area was dangerous? Negligence is key to most premises liability claims. 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 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 South St. Louis County immediately. We can help you determine the specifics of your case.

Relevant Statutes in a South St. Louis 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. Invitees, Licensees, and Trespassers are the three main classifications.

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