Slip & Fall

Slip-and-Fall Accident Lawyers | Joplin MO | Columbia MO

Slip and fall accidents are some of the most common types of premises liability cases. Property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises reasonably clean and safe, and thus free of obstacles that may cause harm to invited guests, customers, or patrons. Failure to do so could result in accidental injury, or even death, to a visitor, leaving the property owner liable for the accident.

Some ways an owner can fail at maintaining a safe, injury-free environment include (but are not limited to):

  • Uneven carpeting or other flooring
  • Wet floors
  • Icy walkways and/or driveways
  • Stairways and stairwells without proper handrails
  • Construction errors
  • Unrestrained dogs or other animals
  • Poor and/or inadequate lighting
  • Unrepaired holes in pavement
  • Unfenced pools
  • Defective elevators or escalators
