Premises Liability Claims

When was the last time you questioned whether a property owner fulfilled its obligation to maintain its premises in a safe condition for tenants or visitors? Or whether store employees received adequate training in how to prevent, identify and fix potential hazards?

If you or a loved one was seriously injured on someone else's property, we can help you determine whether the owner is at fault. Following a serious accident, you are probably left with little more than questions, including:

  • How can I hold the property owner accountable for his or her failure to protect me?
  • Can I recover the compensation I need for my financial losses?

Aggressive Legal Help for People Injured in Kansas and Missouri

An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you answer these questions, and more importantly, help you take on property owners and their insurance companies to obtain fair compensation.

Attorney Charlie Hyland represents people who suffer serious injuries in Kansas and Missouri. Known as "premises liability claims," these lawsuits involve showing that a property owner was negligent, or careless, in failing to fix known hazards, or in failing to identify and warn visitors of hazards.

Some common types of premises liability claims are:

  • Negligent maintenance cases: Building owners have a duty to regularly inspect their property, make needed repairs and provide required safety equipment. Failure to do so can result in building fires and other catastrophes that cause serious injuries to tenants or visitors.
  • Negligent supervision cases: These cases arise when employers or places of business do not adequately train staff to handle dangerous situations and act with care.
  • Negligent security cases: Property owners who do not properly maintain their premises can create conditions that lead to criminal activity on their property, causing physical harm or financial losses to visitors.

Our firm has a track record of success in personal injury litigation because our attorney approaches cases aggressively and with the knowledge of how defendants try to avoid paying compensation to innocent victims. This can mean pursuing a favorable settlement, but when a negligent party decides to play hardball, we are ready to pursue the compensation our clients are counting on in court.

Cases involving serious injuries that result in significant financial burdens require a creative approach and long-term planning. Our attorney considers the full costs of injuries, including long-term rehabilitation, reduced earning capacity and loss of enjoyment of life when determining how much compensation to pursue. Then, he goes after it aggressively.
