According to the CDC, over one million Americans suffer a slip, trip, and fall injury accidents and over 17,000 people die annually because of these injuries. In fact, on average, falls are one of the top three leading causes of unintentional deaths.

Many slip, trip, and fall accidents result in minor injuries, a sprain, a laceration, bruises. We do not always think of these types of accidents resulting in serious injuries until it happens to you or a loved one.

Weather can be very unpredictable, especially in the state of Missouri. One day, it is sunny, warm, and dry. The next, it might be rainy, foggy, and cold.

A slip is when you lose your footing, a trip is when you catch your foot on or in something, and a fall is when you come down suddenly, often hitting the ground or another object with a great deal of force. Learn the difference to know which kind of personal injury claim to file.

Like us, many personal injury attorneys offer an initial free consultation with a lawyer to help you determine if you have a legal claim against the person (or persons) who caused your accident.
Of course, every case is different so use this time to tell us about your accident but also to make a determination as to whether we are the right attorney for you.
Obtaining medical records of your injuries can be crucial to your case to help prove the accident caused your injuries and the severity of them to recover your medical expenses when you’ve been injured in a car or truck accident that was caused by another driver.
