How A Kansas City Slip & Fall Accident Attorney Can Help

For slip and fall cases, injuries often arise as a result of negligent property owners. A Kansas City slip and fall attorney can help by holding the property owner accountable, which typically involves the following:

  • Negligence: The property owner may be found negligent, meaning they were responsible for creating the conditions that caused the slip and fall. For example, a grocery store owner may be found negligent in a case where a customer slipped and fell on a wet floor, if the owner did not put up warning signs.
  • Fault: The property owner must be found at fault for the injuries, meaning that the slip and fall accident must have caused the injuries or aggravated pre existing injuries.

At Brown & Crouppen Law Firm of Kansas City, our personal injury attorneys can help determine if you have a case and to build a strong claim that will help you obtain compensation for your injuries.

Our lawyers can help you recover compensation for the following damages:

  • Medical bills: Often a slip and fall injury will lead to medical treatment such as surgery, emergency care, and rehabilitative therapy. This can be due to broken bones, a traumatic brain injury, or lacerations. No matter your injury, our slip and fall attorneys can help you receive reimbursement for your medical expenses.
  • Lost income: In some cases, slip and fall victims are unable to return to work after the accident due to their injuries. Our lawyers take lost wages into account when fighting for compensation.
  • Non-economic damages: These are damages that are intangible, which may include the following: pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of consortium, loss of enjoyment of life, and permanent disfigurement or disability.
  • Punitive damages: In some cases, additional payment may be awarded by Kansas or Missouri courts to punish the negligent party. This may occur if the negligent property owner’s behavior is determined to be egregiously insidious.
  • Property damages: If your personal property was damaged as a result of the slip and fall accident, our lawyers can help you seek compensation for repairs or replacements.

Legal Considerations for Kansas City Slip and Fall Cases

Depending on where the accident occurred, cases may be governed by Kansas or Missouri laws.

  • Kansas: In the state of Kansas, individuals have 2 years from the date of the accident or the date the injury was discovered to pursue a slip and fall case (See Kansas statute of limitations).
  • Missouri: For accidents that occurred in Missouri, individuals have 5 years from the date of the accident or the date the injury was discovered to submit a slip and fall injury claim (See Missouri statute of limitations).

Due to the statute of limitations and other legal considerations, getting help from a slip and fall lawyer early on in a case can provide many advantages, including evidence collection, legal documentation, filing a successful claim, and building a strong case from start to finish.
