What To Know About Premises Liability Claims

You might have heard the term premises liability before, but not really know what it means. Basically, when you go to a place of business or visit someone's residence, the business or property owner owes you a duty to keep you safe from potential injury. They are required to identify potential dangers and make sure that the dangers are repaired or addressed before they result in a serious injury.

Premises liability claims result when the business or property owner breach that duty to you. Examples include you slipping because they failed to mop up a spill, you fall because they fail to fix a hole in a parking lot or you are injured because they let a dog run loose. Any of these events may result in you having claims for compensation if you are injured due to the landowner's negligent acts. At McShane & Brady, LLC, in Kansas City, our lawyers are committed to helping you fight back when you have been injured while on another's property.

Do You Have A Case?

Not all injuries suffered on another's property will lead to claims for compensation. We review the incident carefully to determine if you may have a case, and then we immediately get to work pursuing a recovery from the responsible parties. Some of the different types of premises liability cases we handle include:

  • Slips-and-falls and trips-and-falls in grocery or department stores, as well as other places of business
  • Dog bites and other animal attacks
  • Inadequate security at major events, apartment complexes or businesses
  • Inadequate lighting in stairwells or parking lots
  • Defective railings in stairways

Our lawyers have successfully represented a number of clients with premises liability claims, and we understand what it takes to obtain results in these matters. We can help you learn more about your options, and decide on the specific approach that best matches your goals in your case.
