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.
Thousands of people are injured each year in avoidable slip and fall accidents – wet floors, defective stairs, or rough patches of ground. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident in Missouri, the personal injury attorneys at Sticklen & Dreyer Law Firm recommend looking into the options you have for receiving compensation for your loss.
Deciding between filing an insurance claim or pursuing compensation in court through a personal injury case may be determined by Missouri laws. Two of the most important of these are the statute of limitations deadline for filing a slip and fall lawsuit, and the “shared fault” rules that can affect your right to recover compensation if you bear some amount of responsibility for the accident.
We at Sticklen and Dreyer are experienced in handling injury claims involving slip and fall accidents and premises liability in both Joplin and Columbia, Missouri.
