Not every injury is the fault of a driver. Many serious injuries occur because something bad and avoidable happens on another person’s property. Missouri 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. Our Kansas City premises liability attorneys have decades of experience defending the rights of injured victims and holding negligent property owners responsible.
