St. Louis Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer
Injuries May Be Preventable. Call Our Firm To Learn More!
Every day across America, slip and fall accidents occur in nearly every
type of building or premises. Sometimes called premises liability cases,
these are a specific type of
personal injury case that occurs on property owned by another person or entity. In these
cases, it is the responsibility of the property owner to ensure that their
property is taken care of and safe for any visitors that may be present.
If you or a loved one has sustained an injury as the result of a slip or
fall on property owned by another, you may be entitled to compensation
for your injuries. However, not all slip and fall accidents have grounds
for a lawsuit. For example, if the injured person is under the influence
of drugs or alcohol, he/she is responsible for his/her injuries. At Millikan
Wright, LLC our St. Louis injury lawyers understand what you may be going
through at this time and are dedicated to helping you secure the best
outcome in your case.

What Is Considered To Be Slip & Fall?
Negligence is most common cause of a slip and fall accident and can present
in a wide variety of circumstances. In general, negligence can be said
to occur when the responsible party has not acted reasonably in their
maintenance of the property.
Some of the most common slip and fall and premises liability accidents
seen at our firm include:
- Wet floors
- Loose or torn carpeting
- Uneven ground
- Manholes or large holes without warning
- Broken sidewalks/driveways
- Loose or missing handrails
- Step(s) without warnings
To win a premises liability lawsuit, the injured party must prove three
critical points in a court of law. One, the accident was through no fault
of the injured party; two, the accident was due to a dangerous condition
or negligence on behalf of another party; and three, the other party was
aware of the condition that resulted in the accident. An experienced personal
injury attorney will be able to assess the merit of your case and explain
how the law applies to your specific situation. Working with a lawyer
will ensure you are fairly represented and receive everything you are
entitled to under premises liability law.
