Many of us love the wintertime; the cold air on our cheeks, seeing our breath in the morning light, and the falling snow with the sledding that follows while we enjoy time with our families and loved ones. However, when an unexpected serious injury happens due to a property owner’s negligence or a dangerous condition in a parking lot or commercial property, it can be time to seek legal advice from a law firm with years of experience in personal injury and fall injuries.
The resulting broken bones, brain injuries, and other severe injuries from fall accidents can result in long-term medical care and mounting medical bills, countless hours on the phone with the insurance companies, and takes a significant toll on your finances, loved ones, and your life. If you or your loved one is an injured person due to icy conditions that lead to black ice, causing a fall accident, then call today for a free consultation with one of our Kansas City personal injury lawyers to know your legal rights and see if you are entitled to compensation for your serious injuries.

Property owners, homeowners, and commercial property owners are responsible for keeping walkways clear of ice and snow. When they fail to do so, and you or someone you love falls on ice and suffer the consequences from those dangerous conditions, you may be entitled to compensation through a premises liability claim or other fall cases.
