Slip & Fall Attorneys in Kansas City, Missouri
Property owners have a duty to those who visit their homes or businesses to provide a safe environment. Unfortunately, accidents occur regularly due to poorly maintained premises. Perhaps you slipped and fell in the parking lot at the mall and damaged your muscles and tendons, or a step broke under your feet, causing you to break your leg. If you have been seriously injured because of a property owner’s negligence, you have the right to make a claim for the harm done to you. You need the help of a skilled premises liability attorney.

In any premises liability case, it must be shown that the party in control of premises either knew or ought to have known of the danger before the injury occurred. When possible, we will obtain and review security footage to see how long a condition existed prior to your accident. We will interview witnesses to the accident. We will thoroughly investigate both the incident and the property to learn if there have been prior issues. Our lawyers understand what you are going through, and we will work diligently to obtain compensation for your injuries.
