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.
