Missouri Premises Liability Lawyers
What is Premises Liability?
Missouri law establishes certain minimum standards that landowners and business owners must meet regarding the safety of their parking lots, sidewalks, entryways, and interiors. When they fail to do so and someone gets hurts, they may be held liable. If you have suffered an injury on the property of a business or individual due to the owner’s or manager’s negligence or violation of the law, you have a legal right to bring an action to recover damages. This legal right is called premises liability.
Many of safety rules are often violated. Insufficient lighting, improper sidewalk and parking lot maintenance, and unsafe entryways are extremely common. These unsafe conditions can lead to slip and fall accidents and other types of incidents that cause injuries to visitors and patrons.

What is the Statute of Limitations for Missouri Premises Liability Cases?
Please remember that every injury claim is subject to statutes of limitations. A limited period of time is available in which to file your lawsuit. If you miss this window of opportunity, you cannot later bring a lawsuit and will be completely barred from pursuing a claim. This statutory time period varies depending on the type of case and particular fact pattern.
