Invitees, Licensees, and Trespassers

There are three levels of premises liability, which are determined by the status of the visitor. An invitee enters the premises to conduct business. For instance, you are an invitee while shopping at the grocery store or eating at a restaurant. Property owners owe invitees the highest level of liability.The term “licensee” refers to guests at social events. A trespasser is anyone who enters the premises without the knowledge or permission of the owner. Generally speaking, unlawful visitors are not entitled to compensation for their injuries unless the property owner was aware of their presence on the premises. If you have believe you have a case, contact a premises liability lawyer at Kuhlman & Lucas, LLC today for a free case evaluation.

The Doctrine of Attractive Nuisance: Child Injuries

According to Missouri premises liability law, the doctrine of attractive nuisance applies to child trespassers. This doctrine of attractive nuisance states that a land owner may be responsible for child injuries, even if he or she was unaware of the child’s presence.For example, a property owner could be held responsible for a child who trespasses and falls into an abandoned swimming pool. According to the doctrine of attractive nuisance, the owner should have known that pool could attract a curious child and taken adequate measures to prevent accidents. If you have a case, contact Kuhlman & Lucas, LLC for a free evaluation.

Slip & Fall Accidents

While many slip & fall accidents result in relatively harmless bruises, some can cause catastrophic injuries. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that slip and fall accidents are the cause of 35% of all brain injury cases and 46% of all spinal cord injuries in the United States each year. If you or a loved one has been severely injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be entitled to fair compensation. For a free case evaluation, contact Kuhlman & Lucas, LLC today.

Dog Bite Injuries

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that nearly one million people seek medical attention for injuries suffered in dog attacks each year, with children accounting for about half of this number. Dog owners must take care to protect others from their pet, especially if they are aware of the dog’s aggressive nature. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a dog bite or attack, contact Kuhlman & Lucas, LLC today for a free case evaluation.
