Protecting Your Rights After A Slip-And-Fall Accident
When property owners do not maintain their buildings and grounds, they put your safety at risk. If you are injured on their premises, you have a right to seek compensation. Without a legal background, however, you may not know whether the payout you receive is fair and will effectively cover your expenses.
Since 2006, Helfrich Hotz Brandt, LLC, has aggressively represented Franklin County residents who are struggling with trip- or slip-and-fall injuries and other accidents caused by dangerous premises. Our attorneys challenge negligent property owners and their insurance providers when they reject our clients’ claims or offer low payouts to cover their injuries. With law offices in Union and Washington, we are the legal allies you want to defend your interests in court or at the negotiating table.
Strong Investigative Skills On Your Side
In handling slip-and-fall accident claims, we aggressively seek out the facts that support our clients’ claims. Our investigations often uncover negligence on the part of property owners, building managers and other parties. This information can prove decisive in a personal injury claim.
Some of the most common causes of slip-and-fall accidents include:
- Wet or slippery surfaces
- Loose floor tiles or carpeting
- Uneven stairs
- Improperly secured or loose handrails
- Poorly lit parking lots
Even The Playing Field
Property owners and their insurance providers know that slip-and-fall injuries can be costly to treat. They use tactics to complicate matters so injury victims and their loved ones agree to small settlements. If you are representing yourself in a personal injury lawsuit, what you do not know about these tactics can cost you.
While businesses have vast resources to defend against these claims, you can even the playing field by enlisting the services of an experienced personal injury attorney.
Our lawyers recognize the strategies these businesses use. We create strong arguments in court based on Missouri’s premises liability laws, eyewitness testimony and compelling evidence. Our lawyers will zealously promote your claim because it is the right thing to do.
