Who Is Liable for My Slip and Fall Injuries?

In Sullivan, MO, the relevant law is called "Premises Liability." Property owners have a responsibility to patrons or visitors to keep their properties safe and free of any hazardous conditions. If there is a dangerous condition, they must warn you of it and do what they can to fix it. If you receive a slip and fall injury because of loose wiring, black ice, a bulging area of the floor, an unmarked wet floor or any other dangerous condition that the property owner neglected to either repair or warn of, you can file a claim for negligence and premises liability. Conclusively demonstrating negligence is a complicated task, and necessitates the skill of an experienced Sullivan, MO slip and fall lawyer.

Comparative Negligence

Sullivan, MO has what is referred to as a "comparative negligence" law, meaning that a plaintiff may bear some legal responsibility their personal injury. In any settlement or trial, a defendant will endeavor to blame you for as much of the fault as possible. If they're successful, the full amount of compensation you receive will be substantially 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 are awarded will be $40,000. That's why it is imperative to have a savvy Sullivan, MO slip and fall lawyer in your corner to help reduce the amount of fault placed on you for your injury. To place as much of the blame for your slip and fall accident 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 visitors
  • Reasonable steps were taken to protect customers, for example a "wet floor" sign by a puddle
  • You were using inappropriate or dangerous footwear
