Injured due to Property Defect or “Slip-And-Fall”
A slip-and-fall accident can happen out of nowhere. In some cases, these accidents can leave you with temporary, severe or permanent injuries. If you were hurt during an accident in Kansas related to a defect on the property of a person or business, you should work with a lawyer who knows how to handle these cases.
Attorney Sally G. Kelsey can help you seek accountability and compensation for an injury caused by a defective condition on someone’s property. Proving liability in these types of cases can be challenging; you must prove that the party acted unreasonably under the circumstances in allowing the dangerous condition to exist. Recreational facilities owned by the City or State carry broad immunity from claims of negligence. Sally brings over 30 years of experience to these cases and knows how to evaluate these cases. Even if liability is in question, it may be worthwhile to file a claim and argue the case.
Slip-And-Fall Accidents Happen for Many Reasons
Many things can lead to a ‘slip-and-fall’ injury. Whether at someone’s home, the grocery store, the shopping mall, or out in a parking lot. Some of the factors that can lead to injury include:
- Wet floors
- Poor lighting
- Loose carpet or flooring
- Loose equipment (cords, wires, tools, etc.)
- Uneven floors
- Poorly designed/inaccessible handrails or stair steps
- Street cracks/potholes
Many of these problems are arguably caused by companies or property owners failing to practice the duty of care they owe you as a guest or customer. There are various legal principles that apply to different types of cases. Sally can help assess liability, and offers a free consultation to discuss the circumstances of your case.
