Injured on Another Person’s Property in Missouri?

What Is a Slip & Fall?

While the term “slip and fall” is used as a general statement, any accident that involves an underfoot hazard can be considered to be a slip & fall. Broken tiles, wet floors, objects on stairs, and potholes can all lead to an injury if proper warning is not given of their presence. In Missouri, successful premises liability claims require proof that the property owner acted negligently.

In order to show negligence, the following must be proven:

  1. The defendant had reasonable knowledge of the hazard
  2. Despite this knowledge, the defendant failed to take reasonable precautions
  3. You were injured because of the property owner’s inaction

If negligence can be proven, you may be able to recover monetary compensation for damages related to the accident, such as medical expenses, lost income, and pain & suffering. It is important to note, however, that your eligibility for recoveries will be influenced by your level of fault in the accident, as determined by the court.
