Premises Liability Lawyer in Webster Groves - 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 go to the hospital to get care, you might be able to pursue a lawsuit. 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. Minor bruising and injuries that don't require medical attention may not be feasible as cases.

2. Should the owner have known about the dangerous area? Did you see a sign stating the area was dangerous? For the case to move forward, there has to have been a level of negligence. 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 Webster Groves immediately. We can help you determine the specifics of your case.

Relevant Statutes in a Webster Groves Premises Liability Case

Determining whether or not you have a premises liability case is going to depend on your legal status on the premises. There are three main classifications of people in a slip and fall accident: invitees, licensees, and trespassers.

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