Slip and Fall Attorney
Slip and Fall Cases Call for a Skilled Advocate
Slip and fall injuries are among the most challenging personal injury cases to prove. Our team has over a decade of experience in overcoming these challenges and maximizing recovery for our clients. The class of "slip and fall" cases includes not only falls on slick surfaces, but also falls due to slipping/tripping on hazards, uneven surfaces, defective stairs or even inadequate lighting. If a dangerous condition on someone else’s property led to your fall, we are here to help you understand your right compensation.
In any Missouri slip and fall case, you must prove that the responsible party either:
Knew or had reason to know about the hazard or dangerous condition that caused you to fall
Created that hazard or dangerous condition
Should have discovered and remedied the hazard or dangerous condition because it was present for a sufficient time before your fall
There are many ways to interpret these elements, so speaking with an experienced slip and fall lawyer is an important first step if you think you might have a claim.
Compensation for your Damages
Victims of slip and fall accidents are entitled to several types of damages, including:
Medical expenses and mileage reimbursement
Pain and suffering
Skilled personal injury attorneys can help maximize your ability to recover the full extent of your damages.

Preserving Evidence Early
Evidence can disappear quickly in a slip and fall case, and crucial evidence including surveillance footage is often destroyed if proper steps are not taken to preserve it soon after the accident. Therefore, we encourage you to consult with an attorney as soon after your fall as possible while the evidence may still be available. Contact us today at (417) 725-3355 to schedule a free consultation as early as today.
