Premises Liability Lawyer in Winchester - Can I sue?

There are a few factors that determine whether or not you should pursue a premises liability case.

1. Were you seriously hurt in the fall or accident? 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. To have a legal claim, you must have been injured as a result of the dangerous condition. 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? Was the area taped off? 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 sign, and it was easily noticeable, your accident may be harder to recover from.

If you aren't sure about the circumstances of your claim, or if the building owner did act negligently and you were hurt, call our Premises Liability Lawyers in Winchester immediately. We can help you determine the specifics of your case.

Relevant Statutes in a Winchester 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 Winchester 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 Winchester premises liability lawyer could help people with their case, regardless of what class of visitor they are.
