How do we prove a premises liability case?

In order to prove the case the lawyer typically must prove that the owner knew or should have know of the dangerous condition that was on the premises that led to your harm. For example, if the condition was a spill in a grocery store, the lawyer must show that the owners should have known about the spill. We will do that by interviewing employees, looking at cleaning schedules, and comparing those to other grocery stores.

Our lawyers will go to the actual scene of the accident in order to properly represent you. We do not litigate your claim behind a desk. If you have questions about your possible claim call the Kansas City premises liability lawyers of The Krause and Kinsman Law Firm to get a free case evaluation.
