Slip and Falls
Slip and fall accidents can occur for a variety of reasons and can lead to severe injuries. If you or a loved one are in involved in a slip and fall accident, it is important to seek out a Springfield personal injury lawyer immediately. As a former insurance defense attorney, I can tell you that the insurance company is not out to “help you” despite what they may tell you.
Slip and falls occur for multiple reasons. A fall could be a result of a slippery surface, a foreign material such as water, an uneven surface, a rough surface, an unmarked obstacle, or a variety of other causes. Slip and fall accidents in Missouri are a leading cause of premises liability injuries. Property owners, whether they be private, commercial, or governmental, generally owe those entering their property a duty to provide a safe environment, use reasonable and ordinary care to keep the property safe, or warn an individual of a dangerous circumstance.
Victims of slip and fall accidents suffer from a wide range of injuries. Common injuries include, but are not limited to: broken wrists, ankles, legs, arms, and hips; back injuries; neck injuries; traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s); paralyzation; and even wrongful death.
