Fall on Ice or Snow in Missouri
Life in St. Charles, Missouri does not stop during the winter months. People still shop at Schnucks and Dierbergs. Tenants continue to move into apartments like at Remington Place. Mid Rivers Mall gets visited. Establishments are frequented.

Who Might Be Responsible?
When you slip and fall on snow or ice in Missouri, there are multiple parties who might be responsible. The first is the property owner. The second is the contractor hired to perform snow and ice remediation services.
To hold the property owner responsible, a slip and fall victim needs to prove that the snow or ice was dangerous, known or could have been known about, and caused the claimed injuries.
To hold the contractor responsible, a slip and fall victim needs to also prove that the contractor had responsibility under the circumstances to remediate the snow or ice and failed to use ordinary care to do so.
