Premises Liability Lawyer in Union - 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 go to the hospital to get care, you might be able to pursue a lawsuit. Usually, these types of injuries will be broken bones, a dislocated back, sprained ankles or limbs, etc. Most importantly, if you're not injured, you don't have a claim. If you are bruised, and the injury is very minor, your case may not be worth pursuing to a legal degree.

2. Was the owner made aware, but did nothing to remedy the dangerous area? Was there a sign making you aware of the potential danger? Negligence is required for most 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.

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

Relevant Statutes in a Union Premises Liability Case

Determining whether or not you have a premises liability case is going to depend on your legal status on the premises. Invitees, Licensees, and Trespassers are the three main classifications.

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