Slip & Fall Accidents

Slip & Fall AccidentsAt Preston Law, we represent individuals who have been seriously injured due to a slip and fall. Many slip and fall accidents are simply the fault of someone not looking where they should. But, sometimes, another parties’ negligence is the cause of the fall. Whether you slipped on a clear substance that should have been cleaned, or tripped on a stair or other part of a building that was not constructed according to applicable codes, we can analyze and investigate your claim for you. We charge nothing to speak with you if have been injured. We are Springfield Missouri injury lawyers. Please call us for a free consultation on your injury claim.

Do I need a lawyer for my slip and fall?

When you have a slip and fall accident, the insurance company for the land owner or business where your injuries occurred will immediately assign adjusters and lawyers to your claim. We strongly encourage you to seek the advice of an attorney in order to ensure that you are properly prepared to deal with those lawyers and adjusters so that you are not bullied in the early stages of your claim. We offer free consultations to our slip and fall clients so that you know your rights and are prepared to discuss your case.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit?

You should immediately contact a lawyer after your slip and fall in order to know your rights and get your case filed quickly and correctly.  For slip and falls where no death is involved, Missouri law allows five years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. For more information regarding your statute of limitations in cases involving slip and falls and premises liability, see the Revised Statutes of Missouri, §516.120, or contact a lawyer immediately. Even if you have plenty of time left to file your lawsuit, the sooner you get in touch with a lawyer and get your case going, the sooner you may recover compensation to cover you medical bills and other expenses related to your injuries.

Does it cost anything for me to speak with your firm?

At Preston Law, we only get paid if you get paid.  We work on a contingent fee basis that explicitly states that you owe us nothing for attorney’s fees if we don’t collect for you.  Hiring a lawyer is a personal decision, but at Preston Law we have a team of four lawyers and a large office staff of experienced legal professionals, all armed with expert knowledge of auto accident litigation.  Our goal is always to recover the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries through trial or the settlement process.  Unlike some auto accident firms, if the insurance company will not offer you a reasonable settlement, we will take them to court and have a jury decide your case.  We practice throughout all of Missouri, but our office is located in Springfield, Missouri.  We regularly handle cases in the surrounding areas including: Ozark, Nixa, Branson, Joplin, Monett, Neosho, Bolivar, Camdenton, Nevada, Lamar, and Mount Vernon. We are Springfield Missouri injury lawyers.

We only get paid if you get paid and we charge nothing to meet with you to discuss your case.
