I am a minor and I tripped on a hose that is part of the irrigation system. I had to get stitches. I was not warned of any dangers and never saw the hose. What can I sue for and am I considered an invitee or a licensee?

Here's a quote from a recent court opinion.

A licensee is a person who enters the land of another through the possessor's consent, such as a social guest. Stitt v Holland Abundant Life Fellowship, 462 Mich 591, 596; 614 NW2d 88 (2000). In contrast, an invitee is a person who enters...

If your injury arose out of and in the course of your job, and you were covered by workers compensation insurance, and no "third-party" outsider (a person not working for or partnering with your employer) contributed to your injury, then workers compensation is the exclusive remedy.
