Whether you slipped and fell, tripped over something, an item fell on you, etc. you may have a civil claim in the Kansas courts. No matter if the restaurant is in Overland Park, Kansas or anywhere across the state, you must prove negligence. How is that done?
First, you must show that the restaurant caused the hazardous circumstances, or were on notice of the danger and failed to act. It may be necessary to lay the negligence at the feet of the restaurant owner, managers, employees, tenants, etc. What they do, or fail to do, can later become the responsibility of another.
Second, you must show that the restaurant did not make the premises safe and/or failed to warn you of the danger. That can be because they failed to place the "wet floor" sign, didn't place cones around a dangerous area, etc.
Third, even if they claim not have known that the danger existed, it is still possible to hold the Kansas restaurant responsible. Under the law, if they should have know a dangerous condition was present (using the reasonable person standard) the negligence may still stick.
Finally, you must show that the restaurant's in/action was the direct and proximate cause of your injury.
