When you visit another’s property, whether it is an office building, a hotel, a restaurant, or a theme park, you have the right to expect that the grounds will be reasonably safe. They should be free from hazardous conditions and should be adequately protected by security equipment and/or personnel, depending on the type of property and its location. If hazards are present, there should be clear warning signs to inform you of the potential danger (such as wet floor signs or the like).
When property owners fail to uphold their obligation to maintain reasonably safe grounds for their lawful visitors, and someone is injured as a result, they can be held accountable. As a person injured on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your medical care and possibly much more. A Kansas City premises liability attorney at Cullan & Cullan can talk to you about your rights and options in this regard.
