Kansas City Premises Liability Lawyers
Premises liability holds property owners legally responsible for accidents that occur on their property due to unsafe conditions. The kinds of incidents that result in premises liability range from a fall down unsafe stairs to dog bites, swimming pool accidents or the failure of a landlord to provide adequate building security.
It is not just that a property is unsafe; you have to show that the property owner knew or should reasonably have known that the premises were in an unsafe condition and still did not take proper steps to take care of the situation.
Gaining timely representation in this type of accident is crucial in order to gather critical physical evidence. There is nothing stopping a property owner from clearing up what caused the accident, hindering the ability to prove your case.

Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common types of premises liability cases. According to the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI), falls account for over 8 million hospital emergency room visits and, of those, 1 million are due to slips and falls.
The attorneys at Nash & Franciskato Law Firm in Kansas City have obtained substantial settlements in numerous slip and fall cases by proving unsafe conditions like:
- Inadequate lighting and improper handrails on stairways, some of which constitute clear building code violations
- Failure to remove snow and ice from sidewalks or to mop up water after cleaning floors
$475,000 Settlement Against Restaurant for Dangerous Stairs. An elderly client fractured her hip when she fell down the stairs of a restaurant. After her hip replacement surgery, she developed post-operative respiratory failure and other complications requiring her to be hospitalized and ultimately led to her death. The attorneys at Nash & Franciskato were able to prove the stairs were defective because of inadequate lighting and the installation of an improper handrail.

Inadequate Security and Supervision Can Lead to Unsafe Conditions
Premises liability claims can also involve inadequate supervision in a care facility such as a nursing home or the failure of a commercial gym to complete background checks on employees, ultimately creating an environment susceptible to criminal activity.
Unsafe conditions created by negligence may justify taking strong legal action to recover damages; for example, failure of apartment building owners to properly maintain locks, smoke detectors and other equipment necessary for the safety of residents.
