Dangerous Conditions On Property
Landowners and businesses in Missouri and Kansas have a duty to keep their property safe and free from hazardous conditions that can result in harm to other people. Every year, many people are hurt because businesses (including, for example, hotels or big-box stores) fail to keep parking lots or sidewalks free from dangerous conditions. These dangerous conditions can be wet or icy surfaces, cracked or raised sidewalks, dilapidated buildings, or lack of adequate lighting. When landowners and businesses negligently fail to treat or remove snow and ice and someone falls and is injured as a result, that business or landowner could be held liable and required to reimburse the injured person’s lost wages, medical expenses, and damages for pain and suffering.
Examples of dangerous conditions can include:
- Slippery surfaces from spills, mopped areas, snow, or ice
- Improperly installed stairs, handrails, or ramps
- Raised and uneven surfaces in sidewalks
- Inadequate lighting
