Experiencing an injury can be a traumatic experience, particularly when it occurs in a space that you trust to be safe. Not only is there physical pain to contend with, but the emotional effects and financial impacts cannot be underestimated. However, Kansas premises liability law protects those who have been hurt on another person’s property, ensuring that you receive the compensation you need to cover medical expenses, loss of work, and other costs.
The legal concept of premises liability addresses a property owner’s responsibility to maintain a safe, hazard-free environment for guests. Both public and private properties, such as homes and stores, can be held responsible for injuries that occur as a result of a preventable accident. Generally, guidelines allow a victim to pursue a lawsuit against a property owner if the accident was caused by a hazardous condition that was not properly addressed.
If you’ve experienced an injury and believe that you may have a case for premises liability, you may have a variety of unanswered questions, such as:
In the state of Kansas, Kansas Statutes section 60-513 states that you have a maximum of two years to file a lawsuit pertaining to an injury related to premises liability. The two-year timeline begins on the date the injury occurred. This statute of limitations covers a broad range of situations, including personal injury and property damage resulting from an issue on someone else’s property.
According to Kansas Statutes section 60-258a, even if it is determined that you are partially “at fault” for your injury, you may still receive damages. As long as the court does not place your percentage of liability at more than 50 percent, the property owner can still be required to provide financial compensation for injuries and other damages.
There are various factors that can determine whether you have a case for premises liability injury. Ultimately, you must be able to prove that your injuries are a direct result of wrongdoing or negligence by the individual responsible for the property (rather than your own negligence).
There are many conditions that can qualify for a premises liability injury case, including:
