St Louis, MO Slip and Fall Attorney

Slip, fall, and hurt because of someone else’s negligent behavior?

Now you have a pile of medical bills, lost income from work, a slow and painful recovery, and you can’t do the things you love with the people you care about most.

And you have another much larger problem. One you probably don’t realize.

That lies in finding a slip and fall lawyer in St. Louis who cares enough and has the experience to get you the money you deserve.

Because many lawyers don’t. Some firms, called “settlement mills,” ram you through their process as fast as possible to maximize their own dollars per hour.

Large firms have you talk to an experienced senior attorney…but then let inexperienced junior attorneys and paralegals do all the real work on your claim.

In either case, you miss out on money you should get. You may even lose your claim entirely. And sometimes, you can miss out on six figures or more!

So, the quality of the slip and fall attorney you choose matters a lot.

And that’s where Mullen & Mullen Law Firm comes in. We’re a small firm of just three slip and fall attorneys.

No matter who represents you, you get a highly skilled attorney with at least 15 years of experience. Two of our attorneys have multiple decades of experience.

And we don’t employ either a single paralegal or inexperienced junior attorney. That means a skilled lawyer does all the real work on your claim.

Finally, it also means you have the greatest chance of winning the most money possible for your injuries.

Our attorneys have been mentioned by notable publications like Thomson-Reuters’ Super Lawyers, Forbes, Newsweek, The National Top 100 Trial Lawyers, Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, Best Attorneys of America, and more.

And we have thousands of satisfied clients. Just Google “Mullen & Mullen’s Reviews” to read our 325+ nearly perfect client reviews.

Special Savings You Only Get with Mullen & Mullen’s Slip And Fall Attorneys in St. Louis

If all that’s not enough, you get even more when you choose Mullen & Mullen:

  • Only pay medical bills when you win your claim. This sounds almost too good to be true. Who’s ever heard of a medical professional or institution who doesn’t ask for payment until after you win your lawsuit? But it is 100% true. If we take on your case, we can connect you with medical professionals who won’t charge you a thing until after you win your claim (even if you don’t have health insurance).
  • A reduced 29% case fee (regularly 33.3%). If your claim settles out of court (and about 90% of ours do), you pay just 29% of your final winnings as your fee. You can expect high odds this will happen because of our attorneys’ proven experience.

  • More savings other firms don’t offer. Most slip and fall lawyers in the St. Louis area contract out their private investigation services. We employ a private investigator, and this costs less. And we pass the savings on to you. Plus, Mike Foster has been with us for more than a decade and knows all the right questions to ask to garner the most compelling evidence.

How Our St. Louis-Based Slip and Fall Attorneys Overcome Common Defenses Used by Insurance Companies

Property owners frequently want to do the right thing for slip and fall victims. However, insurers will end up making payment. And they only profit when they pay less out on a certain number of claims.

So, your real dispute will end up being with the property owner’s insurer. Here’s what their lawyer may try to argue to minimize their payout, and what we can do to defeat them:

  • No dangerous condition existed. The burden of proof in your claim is on you. You must show a dangerous condition existed and that it led to your injuries. The defending attorney may try to say there was no dangerous condition or that the property owner did not have enough time to address it. Pictures of the dangerous condition taken by you, bystanders, or the property owner’s security camera can prove otherwise.
  • You failed to observe the dangerous condition. Yes. You have an obligation to be safe and avoid an obviously dangerous condition, if possible. This defense comes into play with uneven surfaces, loose carpet, or improperly marked step-downs. However, using witnesses and your own documentation of the situation usually is enough to overcome this defense.
  • Your fall didn’t cause your injuries. To win your claim, it must be clear that your fall caused your injuries. You can easily prove it did with medical records. And keeping a journal of your injuries and how they affect your life can be quite helpful in defeating this argument also.
  • You contributed to your injuries in some way. Missouri law allows for “contributory negligence.” This means you can be held partially responsible for causing your own injuries. So, if you were on your phone at the time of your slip and fall, the defending attorney may try to use that against you. If you are found 25% responsible for your injuries, then your final settlement value falls by 25% also. However, detailed records and evidence discussed earlier can easily overcome this argument.

What Kinds of Evidence Can Help You Win Your Claim?

After you fall and get hurt, your instinct is to take care of your injury, not gather evidence about it.

But, once you feel stable, and even if you’re in agony, you need to gather as much evidence as possible to protect yourself. Some property owners will tamper with evidence and instruct their employees to not say anything.

So, here’s what to gather and do immediately at the scene of your slip and fall:

  • Images and videos of the accident scene, especially the dangerous condition that caused your accident, and your injuries. You can’t overdo it. Take pics of everything. Shoot a video of the entire area. You want to show the exact dangerous condition (such as a spill on the floor) and make it clear no warning signs were placed in the area. Also make sure to take images of your injuries currently because it’s when they’re the most apparent.
  • Make a report to the property owner. Always notify the property owner of your accident, if possible. If not, make sure you have the address of the property so you can track down the owner later.
  • Witness contact information. Get contact information (name, phone number, email, and address) of everyone who witnessed your slip and fall. If you make a report to the property owner, that will likely contain witness contact information too.

How Long Will It Take to Settle Your Slip and Fall Claim?

We can’t answer this question precisely until knowing the specific facts surrounding your claim.

However, the length of time it takes to settle your claim depends on the following factors:

  • Liability or injury disputes. The property owner may or may not dispute your claims. Your claim could take just a few months to settle, or greater than a year.
  • Your medical prognosis. Your doctor may have you go to physical therapy for months before finally deciding on a surgery. You need to get a final medical prognosis from your doctor so that you know all your past, current, and future medical expenses before filing your claim.
  • Negotiations. It takes time to come to an agreement on what compensation you should get. Insurance company lawyers deal with many cases at a time. And it will take some back-and-forth to arrive at an agreement.
  • The insurance company. Some insurance companies put up more of a fight than others. Some are just downright unreasonable.
  • Assembling the demand package. It takes time to gather all your medical bills and analyze all the details of your claim. Once done, then your attorney can come at the property owner with a demand for payment.
