It’s true that “accidents happen”. However, when accidents happen that could have or should have been prevented by the property owner, a premises liability lawsuit can provide an injury victim with compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages stemming from the preventable accident.
If you or a loved one has been hurt on another person or company’s property in St. Louis and surrounding areas of Missouri and Illinois, you can rely on The Hayden Law Firm to pursue your rights and maximize your compensation.
A simple “caution” or “danger” sign can go a long way in notifying the public of dangers and preventing accidents. When homeowners, business owners and other property owners fail to meet their duty of care, they expose themselves to a premises liability claim. Examples of accidents that can lead to a premises liability claim include:
• Slip and fall accidents
• Dog bites and animal attacks
• Sexual assaults due to inadequate security
• Amusement park accidents
• Swimming pool accidents
• Hotel accidents
• Restaurant accidents
In these types of cases, it is important to remember that not only are you pursuing justice for yourself, but you’re also ensuring that no one else is injured in the same way again. At The Hayden Law Firm, we handle all manner of premises liability claims stemming from attacks on private and public property.
The statute of limitations to bring a premises liability claim against an at-fault party in Missouri is five years from the date of the incident or accident. It is best to seek the advice and representation of a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after suffering an injury on someone’s property.
