St. Louis Slip & Fall Injury Attorneys
Missouri Premises Liability Claims
Premises liability deals with the legal responsibility of a property owner in regards to certain circumstances which lead to injury on their premises. "Slip and fall" is one of the most common and known types of premises liability claim, but claims may also be filed for such situations as negligent security, swimming pool accidents, retail store accidents and more. Hazardous or dangerous conditions at a mall, store, house, apartment or office building may all qualify for the injured person to hold the property owner or manager liable. A St. Louis slip & fall attorney will be able to provide a case consultation to determine who, if anyone, is legally liable for your injuries.
Premises liability cases can be complex and liability may be difficult to prove. For this reason, it is important to consult an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Particularly because the scene of the accident may be repaired, cleaned or otherwise changed, it is also important to take pictures of the scene as soon as possible and gather any other evidence that is available - including the contact information of any witnesses present.
Missouri juries have a history of disfavoring victims of a slip & fall injury. However, a skilled premises liability lawyer will understand what strategies are likely to work in your favor in pursuing compensation for your injury. If a settlement cannot be agreed upon in negotiations, your lawyer will need to have the tenacity and skill to take your case to civil court in order to hold the property owner responsible for their negligence.
