Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

Most slip and fall accidents are avoidable, and caused or contributed to by the property owner’s negligence. For example, not maintaining clear pathways, failing to clean up messes after they happen, and not warning employees or visitors about potential hazards on the grounds. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, the most severe, often reported slip and fall injuries are head injuries and back strains and sprains.

While you can’t control a property owners’ actions, there are several ways slip and fall accidents can be prevented, based on the most common causes of slip and falls:

  • Lack of safety signs in a work environment
  • Icy, unsalted walkways, or loose flooring and carpeting
  • Wet, slick, or “greasy” flooring
  • Improperly stored equipment or tools
  • Unsecured furniture, hand rails, or exposed wires and electrical equipment

If you are injured on another person’s property, you could be entitled to damages. Dog bite injuries, workplace injuries, and other injuries caused by someone else’s carelessness, fall under Missouri’s injury statute.

Liability in St. Louis Slip and Fall Claims

Under Missouri Premises Liability Laws, property owners are required to maintain a safe and hazard-free environment. Whether a property is public or private, if someone is injured while on another person’s property, they are liable for the victim’s damages. However, it’s essential after a slip and fall accident, regardless of where it happened or what caused the accident, to consult a St. Louis Slip and Fall Settlement Attorney because there could be more than one liable party in the incident. For example, if someone is injured at work by a defective product, the person’s employer is liable for damages, but the manufacturer of the product could be sued for additional damages.

Missouri Slip and Fall Settlements

Negotiating a slip and fall settlement in Missouri can be challenging, but with a Missouri Slip and Fall Lawyer on your side, the process is seamless and hassle-free. An experienced attorney can protect you from the insurance company’s tactics and make sure that you get the compensation that you deserve. Slip and fall settlements are calculated based on the following factors:

  • Who caused the accident – is one person at-fault, or are multiple people liable?
  • Where did the incident occur? – public property, private property, or at work?
  • When was the incident reported? – was a workers compensation claim filed within two years of the incident? Did the victim file a personal injury claim against the property owner within Missouri’s injury statute?
  • The severity of the accident – did the victim suffer partial or total injuries, and were they impermanent or permanent?
  • Proof of injuries and the accident – was a police report filed right away, and is there adequate proof of injuries (medical report)?

Payouts for workers compensation and injury claims in Missouri can vary significantly, but with an aggressive St. Louis Slip and Fall Injury Lawyer representing your case, the maximum settlement can be recovered for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages.

If you slipped and fell at work, or on another person’s private property, because of someone’s negligence, you could claim damages via Missouri’s workers’ compensation or injury laws. Workers’ comp benefits, disability benefits, and injury settlements can be paid out one of two ways: in a lump-sum or in a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly amount.
