Premises Liability Lawyer in Sullivan - 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 see a doctor, or if your accident required surgery, you most likely have a case. Legally pursuable injuries include broken bones, surgery, dislocated back, damaged limbs, and more. 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. Did the owner know about the danger and not fix it? 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 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 Sullivan immediately. We can help you.

Relevant Statutes in a Sullivan Premises Liability Case

Your legal status to be on the property is going to determine your recovery potential in the case. The three classifications are: invitees, licensees, and trespassers.

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