Slip and Fall Lawyer in Kansas City Works for You

Tuesday, Dec. 21st 2021

Need a slip and fall Lawyer in Kansas City due to injuries suffered in a fall? You’re not alone. You may be surprised to learn that according to the National Safety Council (NSC) falls are the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death in the United States. In 2019, 39,443 people died in falls at home and at work. In addition, non-fatal fall-related injuries made up a shocking 32% of emergency room visits due to preventable nonfatal injuries. If you have suffered injuries in a slip and fall accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to receive compensation. At Northland Injury Law, we specialize in helping our clients navigate the complexities of the legal system to get the payment they deserve.
Slips and falls are most often caused by uneven or slippery surfaces, or by unseen obstacles. They can occur almost anyplace – from the supermarket to a sporting event to a school, or even when visiting someone else’s home.  Workplace falls are a leading cause of worker’s compensation claims. According to the NSC, “In 2019, 880 workers died in falls, and 244,000 were injured badly enough to require days off of work. “
It’s important to know what to do if you have suffered an injury due to slipping and falling. The first thing to do is to seek immediate medical help for your injuries. Be sure to document when, where, and how your injuries occurred. Report the accident to the establishment where it happened and if possible, take pictures of the scene. This documentation will be needed by your slip and fall lawyer in Kansas City in order to pursue your case.
Property owners have a responsibility to ensure that their premises are safe and free of undue hazards. If their negligence results in an injury to you, you are entitled to receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, any future reduction in wages due to the injury and possibly pain and suffering. In some cases, punitive damages are also awarded if it can be proven that the property owner was aware of the safety issues and failed to address them. 
You can be sure that the property owner’s insurance company will have a team of lawyers and investigators working to minimize payment of claims. They will look for any excuse to deny your claim. That’s why it is vitally important to have a reputable slip and fall Lawyer in Kansas City representing you. You need someone who understands how the system works to guide you through the complexities of the legal system. At Northland Injury Law, our experienced team of litigators has the expertise needed to fight for, and win, your slip and fall case.
