Kansas City Premises Liability Lawyer

Injured While on Another’s Property?

Premises liability is an area of law that governs the responsibilities of property owners and their obligations to ensure visitors and guests are kept safe from preventable harm. When it comes to preventable injuries and personal injury cases, premises owners can be held liable for injuries when they fail to take reasonable measures in ensuring their property is free from potential hazards.

Types of Premises Liability Cases

If a dangerous condition on someone else’s property, including business property, led to an accident that injured you or your loved one, you may have the right to take legal action and pursue a financial recovery of your damages, including your pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, and more. In order to have a valid claim, it must be shown that a property owner failed to uphold their legal duty of addressing hazards they knew about, or should have known about. Failing to fix an open hole where visitors and guests may fall into, for example, is a failure of their legal duty.

Depending on the circumstances, premises liability cases can involve many different types of accidents and injuries. Common examples include:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Stairway, escalator, or elevator accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Dog bites and animal attacks
  • Negligent or inadequate security
  • Fires, explosions, or toxic exposure
  • Defective products or equipment

Because there are several legal elements that must be proven, our team focuses on conducting meticulous investigations into the circumstances surrounding your accident. Did the property owner – whether it be a private citizen or a public company – have a duty to keep visitors and guests safe from preventable harm? Did they fail to address known hazards on the premises, or hazards they should have known about? These questions can be answered through an accumulation of facts and evidence, and can be presented clearly and convincingly to establish fault and liability.

Protecting Your Right to Compensation

Establishing fault and liability is at the core of a premises liability claim, but our legal team also devotes considerable efforts to ensuring you recover the damages to which you are rightfully entitled. While you have the right to pursue compensation under personal injury law, securing a full and fair recovery is not guaranteed, especially when insurance companies and premises owners work diligently to deny, dispute, and underpay your claim.

Backed by decades of collective experience, our attorneys are adept in dealing with large insurance companies and corporations that care only about profits – to the point where they prioritize them over people. As advocates for the injured, we provide the voice and leverage they need to assert their rights, and to compel at-fault parties into paying the full amount of compensation victims need. Representation when dealing with these parties is often critical to the success of a case.
