Premises Liability Lawyer in West St. Louis County - 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. 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. Was the building owner acting negligently? Did you see a sign stating the area was dangerous? Negligence is key to most premises liability claims. 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 notice given of the danger, and you were still injured, your case may be more difficult.

Relevant Statutes in a West St. Louis County Premises Liability Case

In a slip and fall or premises liability case, determining the legal status of the person hurt is important to determine if there is a recovery owed. The three classifications are: invitees, licensees, and trespassers.

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