Premises & Product Liability Lawyers in Kansas City
Legal Help for Victims in Missouri & Kansas
Not every injury is the fault of another driver. Many serious injuries occur because something bad and avoidable happens on another person's property. The law dictates that the owner of a property is responsible, to a reasonable degree, for keeping the property safe for visitors. This is the foundation underlying premises liability law, sometimes called slip-and-fall law.
A classic instance of premises liability is a customer slipping on a wet patch of floor in a shopping mall. The key question in premises liability cases is: Was the owner showing reasonable care in protecting visitors from harm? To slip on an icy sidewalk during an ice storm probably does not qualify as premises liability. To slip on the same ice a week later probably does.
Premises Liability Areas
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Falling merchandise
- Negligent security, such as an unmonitored parking ramp
- Elevator and escalator injuries
- Swimming pool accidents
The other major area of injury liability involves products that fail. In product liability cases, the claim is made against the maker of a product, which may have been manufactured poorly or designed poorly, or failed to communicate to the user any dangers or downsides from use of the product.
