Slip and fall injury claims require plaintiffs to demonstrate that certain elements are present in their case. First, the property owner must have a duty of care to take reasonable precautions to protect the victim from hazards when the owner invited or allowed the plaintiff on the premises. If proper care was not taken and that negligence caused the injury, then the defendant is liable for damages that can include medical costs, lost wages and compensation for pain and suffering. Missouri law allows plaintiffs to collect damages even if they are partly responsible for the incident. In these situations, the recovery would be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to the victim.
