Slip-And-Fall Injuries And Animal Attacks

Slip-and-fall cases often involve significant injuries. Some may believe that simply falling down is a trivial incident, but these types of injuries can leave victims with serious medical issues, including broken bones, damaged spinal columns, head injuries and in the most severe cases, traumatic brain injuries or death.

Were They Negligent?

An important issue that can affect your ability to recover damages is whether the property owner was negligent. To recover damages, you need to show both that they allowed negligent conditions to exist on their property, like a loose stair rail, liquid on a floor, ice on a walkway, or potholes or crumbling concrete in a parking lot or sidewalk. Second, they must know of the condition or it must have existed long enough that a "reasonable" person would have cleaned it up or repaired the problem.

Because the property conditions can change quickly, it is important to contact an attorney at The Nail Law Firm as soon as possible after your accident. Our attorneys work to gather evidence and witnesses who will support your claims and are experienced with handling these claims in Missouri.

Premises Liability And Dog Bites

Slip-and-fall cases are but one type of a broader legal classification of cases known as premises liability. Premises liability also includes many other types of injuries incurred by individuals on property owned by someone else. Dog bites are another important type of premises liability case.

These are not cases involving a minor nip by a dog, but in fact can involve very severe injuries. Dogs will often attack a person's face and neck or cause serious wounds by tearing flesh and leading to dangerous infections.

Facial injuries will often require multiple reconstructive surgeries and still result in permanent scars. Because children are frequently attracted to dogs, they are often the victim, and their attacks will often result in psychological trauma that may demand years of counseling or psychological therapy.
