Experienced Attorneys Proudly Serving Accident Victims in Missouri Since 1957
Our Aurora slip-and-fall attorneys are knowledgeable about the various ways in which property owners must maintain their properties. For example, spills should be cleaned up, broken stairways and railings should be fixed, security cameras should work, unlevel concrete should be fixed or marked and public areas should be free from ice. When property owners overlook their safety responsibilities, serious injuries and death can occur.
What to Do After an Accident
Because slip and fall cases depend on questions of liability and negligence, insurance companies will often try to prove the injured party is at least partially responsible because it decreases the damages owed. It is vital, therefore, to take this into consideration and anticipate such counterclaims. Don’t think you must take on this process alone! Allow our experienced, compassionate personal injury attorneys to work closely with you on your case.
Victims can expect several questions that will help determine liability, including:
- Were you, the plaintiff, distracted during the accident, i.e. by texting or using a smartphone, so that you failed the notice the tripping or falling hazard?
- Were adequate warning signs, i.e. ‘Wet Floor’ or ‘Uneven Pavement’ posted near the hazard?
- Were you, the plaintiff in a place you had legal access to? If the accident site was noticeably dangerous, did you have a compelling reason to be in the area?
