In Minnesota, icy sidewalks and un-cleared snow are a constant danger during winter months and cause many slip and fall accidents. But, there are also accidents that occur due to greasy store floors, unsafe or crowded walkways, hidden drop-offs, potholes or any dangerous or unreasonable condition in the premises. Falls can cause serious injuries, from neck and back misalignment to broken bones, sprains, and in the worst cases, brain and spinal cord injuries.
Slip and fall accidents are by far the most common type of premise liability cases in which the property owner and businesses have a duty to provide a safe environment for people on their property. If you have become injured from a fall that could have been prevented, you may be eligible for compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Property liability is not always clear, so retaining a skilled and qualified injury attorney to help investigate your claim is crucial. Neglect and carelessness happens, but it is the responsibility of each property owner in Minnesota to ensure safety for all visitors and people on their property. If you have sustained injuries from a fall, the owner or renter of the property may be liable if they were at fault for the circumstances causing the fall. But, it is up to the victim to demonstrate that the property owner’s carelessness or neglect caused the injury.
