St. Louis Slip-And-Fall Attorneys
Missouri Snow And Ice Injury Lawyers
The Hullverson Law Firm assists clients injured in slip-and-fall accidents in Missouri and Illinois. Our attorneys have extensive experience pursuing compensation for our clients.
Slip-and-fall claims are a type of premises liability claim. These are claims against property owners whose negligence leads to an injury. We file lawsuits against owners of grocery stores, gas stations, hotels, apartment buildings and other properties in order to collect all necessary damages for our client, including those covering medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Could The Accident Have Been Prevented?
One misconception that people have about slip-and-fall accidents is that the property owner can always be held responsible. This is not true. The key question to ask is: Could the accident have been prevented? If there was no way that the property owner could have known about whatever hazard caused the accident, a lawsuit cannot be filed against that property owner.
However, our investigation often reveals that the property owner should have known about the hazard. For example, if a freezer at a grocery store had been leaking for days prior to the slip-and-fall accident, the owner should have known about it and addressed it. If a crack in the parking lot concrete had caused other trips and falls, it should have been fixed.
Winter Weather Slip-And-Fall Accidents
Many slip-and-fall accidents are caused by accumulation of snow or ice. While this is a natural occurrence, there are often steps that could and should be taken to minimize the danger. Entryways to stores should be cleared. Sidewalks should be shoveled. Failure to do these things may be cause for a premises liability lawsuit.
Personal Injury Cases Handled On A Contingency Basis
Our legal fees are based on contingency. If there is no recovery in your premises liability case, you will owe us nothing for fees or expenses.
