Premises Liability Laws in Missouri
When you enter a store or business, or even another person’s home, you have a right to expect the owner or manager of that property to maintain a reasonably safe environment. Unfortunately, if a property caretaker is careless about preventing hazards or fails to follow safety regulations, it could result in serious injury to anyone who steps foot on the property.
Property managers could be held liable for injuries that occur on their premises, like those caused by slip-and-fall accidents, amusement park mishaps, and animal attacks. If you were injured on another person’s property, make sure you take legal action to pursue justice and prevent others from suffering similar injury in the future.
Who Can File a Premises Liability Claim?
Once you enter the property as an invitee, licensee, or trespasser, you are legally entitled to certain protections from the property owner. Invitees are allowed the most premises liability protection because they were invited to the property to perform an act of business for the property owner or manager. Licensees, or invited guests, are also justified in expecting a safe atmosphere, though trespassers are usually given minimal protection because they were not invited to enter the property.
Whether you were harmed on someone else’s property as an invitee, licensee, or trespasser, if the negligence of another party contributed to your injury you could be eligible to seek compensation for your accident.
