Premises Liability Lawyer in Sturgeon - 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. 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. Bruising, or minor injuries may not be worth legally pursuing.

2. Did the owner know about the danger and not fix it? Was the area taped off? For the case to move forward, there has to have been a level of negligence. Spills on floors, dangerous stairs, holes in floors, parking lots covered with ice, and other types of hazards can cause injuries, and properties owners can be held liable for those injuries. If there was a sign, and it was easily noticeable, your accident may be harder to recover from.

Negligence and severity can be hard to determine, and if you need help, call our Premises Liability Lawyers in Sturgeon immediately. We want to speak with you regarding the details of your case and see how we can help.

Relevant Statutes in a Sturgeon Premises Liability Case

Your legal status to be on the property is going to determine your recovery potential in the case. There are three main classifications of people in a slip and fall accident: invitees, licensees, and trespassers.

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