Ballwin is a family-friendly town with a population of just over 30,000 residents located between Wildwood and Town and Country. The city is just 30 minutes from the St. Louis-Lambert International Airport and 40 minutes from downtown St. Louis. Additionally, Interstates 44, 64, and 270 are accessible from the town, which creates ample opportunity for roadway accidents and other hazards. When trouble brews in town, think about talking to a Ballwin injury lawyer to help clean things up.
In Ballwin, there is a number of parks spread throughout the area. The vast outdoor landscape can provide some fun in the sun, but it also provides several dangerous events that could lead to injury. For instance, the presence of swimming holes throughout the area can cause swimming injuries leading to personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits.
It may seem surprising that such a small town has so much going on and functions so smoothly. NeighborhoodScout says that only 181 crimes took place in Ballwin last year.

Parkway West consistently receives high ratings from online reviewers and last year had a student who achieved a perfect score on the ACT.
