Common Premises Liability Claims in Missouri

Sudden and unintentional falls, whether at home, on another person’s property, or at work, are the most common premises liability claims, but there are several other prevalent causes of premises liability accidents in Missouri, including:

  • Slip and falls (icy stairs, wet floors, loose wires, etc.)
  • Dog bite attacks without trespassing or provocation
  • Fires, leaks, floods, and exposure to chemicals
  • Failure to maintain a safe and hazard-free property
  • Lack of security or safety procedures in place in case of assault
  • Exposure to pests, vermin, and other unsafe matter

Under Missouri premises liability laws, property owners are required to maintain a “safe and reasonably hazard-free” environment to guests. If a guest is injured while on someone’s property, the property owner is liable to compensate the victim for damages.

Premises Liability Lawsuits | St. Louis Premises Liability Lawyers

After a slip and fall, dog bite, or another type of premises liability accident, you need to call the police and gather evidence. Photos of the scene of the accident, witness reports, and debris, in addition to detailed police and medical reports related to the accident, are compelling pieces of evidence when filing a Missouri premises liability lawsuit.

If you suffered physical, mental, or financial harm and losses because of a property owner’s negligence, you could be entitled to compensation. Most Missouri premises liability lawsuits can recover compensation for immediate medical expenses and lost wages, but depending on the circumstances of an accident, workers’ compensation or disability benefits could be involved.

It’s crucial to keep in mind that not all premises liability claims are eligible to recover compensation. Filing a premises liability claim beyond Missouri’s Premises Liability Statute, without adequate evidence from the accident, or without representation from a Missouri Premises Liability Lawyer can jeopardize your right to recover compensation or result in a lower or reduced premises liability settlement.
