Q: Who is liable for an injury caused by a fall- a store owner or visiting vendor who caused a dangerous condition, or both
A visiting stocker from a greeting card corporation left a box in a hard-to- see place in a grocery store aisle causing a potential hazard. Premises liability.
A: These cases are highly factually specific and dependent on state law. There may be liability for both if they played a part. The owner may have not discovered the alleged hazardous condition left by the vendor during routine inspections.You should consult a Kansas attorney. If you are a plaintiff try James Deffet who is licensed in Missouri and Kansas, ph-816-532-2345. Each state has its own statute of limitations on the last day a case may be brought against potential defendants or you are forever barred. I am an IL attorney only. You should contact a Kansas personal injury attorney ASAP.
If you are a potential defendant contact your insurance company ASAP. Good luck to you.
