Kansas City Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers
Protecting Your Legal Rights in Premises Liability Cases
A slip and fall accident on someone else’s property may constitute grounds for a premises liability claim—under certain circumstances. Falling down at a grocery store does not automatically make its owner liable for your damages. You must demonstrate that your fall and the injuries that resulted were due to negligence on the part of the owner or manager of the property.
Slip and fall accidents can lead to serious injuries, so if someone else’s negligence led to one, it’s a good idea to get an attorney on your side. At Presley & Presley, LLC, we have handled thousands of claims for injured individuals and their families throughout the greater Kansas City area.
Our team is comprised of seasoned trial lawyers with a passion for obtaining justice for those harmed through others’ negligence, carelessness, or recklessness. We are also intent on making insurance companies act in an honorable fashion when it comes to paying fair compensation in face of serious injuries.

Premises Liability in Missouri
Property owners have a legal responsibility to provide a reasonably safe environment for those who visit their premises, including customers, clients, tenants, and other invitees. This is referred to as “premises liability,” and is the cause for action in accidents like slip and falls. When a safety hazard that could lead to injuries exists and reasonably could be known of, property owners/managers are expected to warn visitors and repair it in a timely manner. When injuries occur due to an ignored hazard, these property owners or managers can be held legally accountable through a claim or lawsuit from the injured party.
Slip and fall accidents can occur in a number of ways, such as from:
- Wet, slick, or oily floors
- Uneven flooring or sidewalks
- Torn carpeting
- Broken or cracked tiles or sidewalks
- Debris or objects that have fallen into paths, aisles, and corridors
- Unsecured railings
- Inadequate or missing lights leading to poor visibility
If you slipped and fell because of one of these dangers that you were unaware of, you may have grounds for a premises liability claim. Did you face damages, such as a broken bone, sprain, tissue damage, dislocated back, spinal injury, head, neck, knee, or hip damage? Discuss your situation with one of our Kansas City slip and fall lawyers to determine whether you have a valid case worth pursuing.
