Comparative Negligence

Quincy, MO has what's called a "comparative negligence" law, meaning that a plaintiff can be found in some measure responsible for their personal injury. In any settlement or trial, a defendant will try to blame you for as much of the fault as possible. If they succeed, the full amount of compensation you receive will be considerably less than it could be. For instance, if a jury finds that you should be compensated $50,000 for all of your damages, but that you were 20% at-fault for the accident, the amount of compensation you collect will be $40,000. That's why it is imperative to have a knowledgeable Quincy, MO slip and fall lawyer by your side to help minimize the amount of fault placed on you for the accident. To place as much of the responsibility for your slip and fall injury on you, defendants will often try to say that:

  • The dangerous condition on the property should have been obvious to you
  • You were not paying sufficient attention to your surroundings, for example you were looking at your phone
  • You were on a part of the property that is off-limits to customers
  • Reasonable steps were taken to protect patrons, for example a "wet floor" sign by a puddle
  • You were using inappropriate or dangerous footwear
