Premises Liability Litigation In Kansas City, Missouri

When you become injured on someone’s property, you may be entitled to recover damages for your injuries. Property owners and property managers are required by law to maintain their property. Homeowners and business owners are held accountable for injuries under premises liability law. If the owner of the premises is aware of a dangerous condition on the property, he has a duty to fix or remove the dangerous condition in order to secure the safety of all persons entering the property.

At Yonke Law LLC, we can help you if you have been hurt or if a loved one has been killed by a dangerous condition on someone else’s property. Serving Kansas City, Missouri, for more than 20 years in a range of premises liability claims, we represent clients in cases involving:

  • Slip-and-falls: It is common in stores, restaurants and other public places for patrons to slip on spilled liquids and food items. If the store owner or manager knew or should have known about the spill, they can be held liable for the injuries caused by these accidents.
  • Power lines/electrocutions: Our lawyers represent clients injured by power lines and families of those who have suffered wrongful death by electrocution.
  • Inadequate security: Owners of bars, restaurants and other public places are responsible for the safety of their patrons. This includes providing adequate security against fights, violent muggings, shootings and other dangerous situations.

What Is Considered In Premises Liability Claims

Premises liability claims can arise when a person is injured as a result of slipping and falling on someone else’s property. When people are injured in an elevator or escalator accident or when a porch or stairs collapse, they are also entitled to receive compensation for the injuries sustained. A property owner is also responsible for injuries to a house guest caused by a fire or in a swimming pool. Likewise, if a person suffers from lead paint or mercury poison as a result of entering the premises of another, he or she may be compensated for injuries.

What To Do If You’ve Been Injured

If you were injured on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to recover damages. These damages include payment for medical costs and expenses, lost wages and future wages. In some cases, you may recover damages for pain and suffering and emotional distress.

It’s imperative you have enough evidence to prove the owner of the premise was negligent in ensuring his property was safe. This is why it is important to seek the assistance of an attorney to guide you through the legal process.
