Slip and fall accidents are a common cause of injury in Kansas City. They can leave victims with serious — sometimes even fatal — injuries.
What Causes a Slip and Fall Accident?
These injuries happen as a result of a dangerous or hazardous environment. Some examples include:
- improperly maintained stairs
- defective or uneven flooring
- surfaces made slippery by leaks or spills
According to the law, people who own and manage property have an obligation to the public to reasonably care for their property so that people avoid slipping or tripping on anything. This involves adequately warning people of a hazard and promptly repairing any unsafe areas that can lead to one of these accidents.
