St. Louis Slip and Fall Injury Attorneys
Helping Fall Victims Recover for their Losses
Every property owner is legally expected to keep their property in a condition that is reasonably safe for visitors. This generally means an owner should regularly inspect the premises for potentially dangerous conditions and either repair any dangerous conditions or provide visitors with proper warning of the possible danger. When a property owner fails to adequately inspect or maintain a property and a visitor suffers injury, the injured victim has the right to recover for their losses by filing a claim for personal injury. The experienced St. Louis slip and fall attorneys at The Bruning Law Firm are committed to helping injured victims receive a fair and just amount for their losses.
Common Types of Falls
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls are one of the leading causes of unintentional injury1 in the United States. Falls may occur in many different ways, including slip and falls, falls down stairs, falls from other heights, such as windows, and more. Some of the most common injuries that fall victims suffer include the following:
- Severe contusions
- Internal organ damage
Many of these injuries can lead to permanent disabilities, including paralysis or cognitive dysfunction. Even the relatively minor fall-related injuries may still require substantial medical treatment, including hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitation, and more. Additionally, many fall victims are incapacitated from working until they have made a significant recovery from their injuries. With the medical bills combined with lost wages, you can imagine how fall victims can easily and quickly suffer substantial financial losses in addition to their pain and suffering.
