Slip & Fall
Overland Park Slip & Fall Lawyers
Although claims for injuries resulting from a slip and fall or other similar accident may sometimes be undisputed, premises liability cases are often more complicated than other claims, especially when it comes to determining fault. Our Overland Park slip & fall lawyers will help you with any premises liability claim.
The laws in both Kansas and Missouri are very specific regarding when a landowner can be held liable for injuries on the job or within any given premises. Commercial business landlords have few defenses regarding premises liability accidents and more often than not, you may be entitled to financial compensation if you have suffered an injury from:
- A defective or poorly maintained sidewalk or parking lot. (i.e. icy walkways/parking lot, concrete that presents a trip hazard, etc.)
- An attractive nuisance.
- A wet or slippery floor.
- Or an inadequate effort at removing snow or ice from areas open to the public.
A little known fact, according to OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), on the job premises liability accidents are the second most common type of accidental deaths, accounting for roughly 15% of all deaths nationally.
