What are the different types of warning signs?

Whether you are a Missouri property owner, an employer or anyone in charge of maintaining a property, you have a duty to mark off dangerous areas or places of potential hazards to anyone who walks into that location unwarily. One of the simplest ways to warn people of a dangerous spot is to use a warning sign. Depending on the level of risk, you will have to choose the right kind of sign to convey the proper warning.

Falls the leading cause of fatal injury among older adults

As a Missouri senior, you may find that your level of mobility suffers as you age, and that you are not as steady on your feet as you once might have been.

Suggestions for protecting children at amusement parks

Each year, hundreds of families' flock to amusement parks all throughout Missouri for the thrill and adventure of big rides.

Grocery stores are more dangerous than they seem

Missouri grocery shoppers know to a certain extent that their food stores are places where injuries might occur.

Slips, falls and contact with merchandise-- a box falling onto a customer's body, for example-- are among the leading causes of grocery store injuries, and they are largely preventable.

How common are amusement park accidents?

Missouri has its fair share of amusement parks, and while these attractions can prove to be a great way to spend the day, such visits can also turn sour quickly if someone suffers an injury because of a park owner or worker’s negligence. Regrettably, amusement parks are not quite as safe as you might think, and thousands of park attendees suffer injury every year.
