Injured In A Slip-And-Fall Accident?
At Hall Ansley in Springfield, Missouri, our personal injury attorneys bring decades of experience to slip-and-fall accident claims. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a slip-and-fall accident or trip-and-fall accident, we will work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
Slip-and-fall accident cases are considered premises liability claims. They typically occur at grocery stores, retail stores, restaurants, bars, hotels and other commercial establishments. They may involve spills, leaks and slippery surfaces of all kinds.
How We Build Successful Slip-And-Fall Accident Claims
Just because a person slipped and fell while visiting a business does not automatically mean that he or she has a claim. There must be evidence that the business had the opportunity to address the hazard but failed to do so. For example, if one customer spills a gallon of milk and within seconds another customer slips and falls, there may not be a claim because the business did not have time to remedy the hazard. However, if a cooler in the refrigerated section of the store has leaked for days and the leak has been ignored, the business should be held accountable if a patron slips and is seriously injured because of the leak.
Our lawyers will conduct an investigation of the slip-and-fall accident. We will review surveillance videos if appropriate. We will interview employees of the business as necessary. We will gather evidence of negligence and use it to build a strong claim. We will attempt to negotiate, but we will also prepare for trial to maximize your compensation.
