Premises Liability Lawyer in Town & Country - 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. How do you know if you were seriously hurt? Surgery, broken bones, back issues, or injured limbs are considered serious issues. To have a legal claim, you must have been injured as a result of the dangerous condition. If you are bruised, and the injury is very minor, your case may not be worth pursuing to a legal degree.
2. Should the owner have known about the dangerous area? Did you see a sign stating the area was dangerous? 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 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 Town & Country immediately. We can help you.
Relevant Statutes in a Town & Country 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 Town & Country 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 Town & Country premises liability lawyer could help people with their case, regardless of what class of visitor they are.
