Business owners have the duty under Missouri law to exercise reasonable care to discover dangerous conditions, in addition to their duty to protect patrons against dangerous conditions that the owner has knowledge of the defect.
Traditionally, the business owner or an employee actually had to create the dangerous condition to impute actual knowledge on the owner. However, this has been expanded and constructive notice can be implied. With constructive notice a business owner is assumed to have knowledge of a defect, if the condition has been present for an amount of time that the owner should have discovered the condition.
