Premises Liability

Strong Representation for Slip & Fall Accidents

In Missouri, business and property owners are responsible for keeping their property free of hazards. When they fail to do so and an accident results, it is considered a breach of duty in the eyes of the law. If you or someone you love was injured as a result of unsafe building conditions, we can help you file a claim against the property owner.

At Thomas, Birdsong, Mills, McBride & Osborne, P.C., we know what to look for in premises liability cases and how to hold negligent parties accountable. You can rely on our attorneys to advocate for you throughout Waynesville, St. Robert, Fort Leonard Wood, Steelville, Salem, and Houston, and throughout mid-Missouri.

There are many causes of pedestrian accidents, such as:

  • Broken elevators
  • Negligent security
  • Lack of security
  • Parking lot falls
  • Raised carpet/flooring
  • Damaged sidewalks
  • Lead poisoning
  • Slip and fall

Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common types of accidents that can ensue from dangerous property conditions. These incidents can lead to all types of serious injuries, such as head and brain trauma, broken bones, spinal cord damage, back injuries, and more.

A few examples of hazards that may lead to slip and fall accidents include:

  • Inadequate lighting
  • Loose handrails
  • Broken steps
  • Wet floors
  • Known defects
  • Uneven sidewalks

Whether we are pursuing a settlement or fighting for you in court, you can rely on our attorneys to advocate for you.


“I was represented by David Mills in a civil litigation and was so impressed by his work ethic that even though at one time I thought we had no chance to win, he researched the case so thoroughly that we won and even his legal fees were very fair. I would definitely recommend him and his firm.”
— Bob D.
“Recently, I was represented by Scott McBride as a defendant in a minor, but not insignificant, legal matter. We had never met before and I had no experience hiring an attorney. Needless to say, I was nervous about what it would cost and what would happen next, etc. I am relieved to say that nervousness was quickly replaced with confidence. Scott was professional, yet approachable. He explained things clearly, offered opinions based on experience (without sugar coating it), and I always knew where we stood with the case. When he wasn't immediately available, his staff kindly helped me. Other law firms may have done an adequate job, too. But I'm glad I chose this one.”
— Eric M.
