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.

compensation they rightfully deserve. By prioritizing personalized service
and leveraging our extensive experience, we guide clients through their

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
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.
