Premises Liability/Slip & Fall Case Settled For Significant Amount Of Money

Our client fractured her ankle after she slipped and fell on some ice last winter while getting out of her car at her apartment complex.

The key to the case was the fact that the apartment complex admitted they ran out of salt and was unable to take care of its roads and parking lots. The complex had a duty to maintain safe roads and parking lots and breached that duty by not having enough salt to treat its roads. Just like our wonderful client, countless other Kansas and Missouri tenants slip and injure themselves because of hazardous conditions at rental properties, and if the cause of the slip was due to the property manager or landlord's negligence, especially when it comes to the property’s safety and upkeep, then both Kansas and Missouri laws allow the injured individual to file a lawsuit to cover medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.

How Can Slip and Fall Lawyers Help You?

Actions based on premises liability are governed by the five-year statute of limitations applicable to negligence claims in Missouri. In Kansas, however, you only have two years to file a lawsuit.
