While the large majority of falls result in nothing more than minor bruises, some of them can be so serious that they cause the individual to suffer catastrophic injuries. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)reports that slip and fall accidents are the cause of 35.2% of all traumatic brain injury cases in the United States every year, as well as 46%of all spinal cord injuries.
If you or a loved one have suffered injuries in a slip and fall accident, you may be entitled to recover compensation in a personal injury or premises liability lawsuit against the owner of the property on which the accident occurred. With the help of an established Missouri premises liability lawyer at the Monee Law Firm, you can file a claim for the compensation that you deserve. We have successfully recovered more than $250 million in verdicts and insurance settlements for our clients, including:
- A $12.25 million settlement for a premises liability case
- A $137,500 settlement for a premises liability case
A premises liability claim depends on demonstrating that the proprietor failed to take reasonable precaution to safeguard against accidents, such as by cleaning a spill on the floor or repairing a broken step in a staircase. Some falls are the result of clumsiness or a mistake, but a large percentage of them are avoidable, and you should not be forced to pay the price for another person’s negligence.
