Minnesota Slip and Fall Injury Lawyer
Property owners have a responsibility to ensure that their property is safe for all who are permitted to be there. Unfortunately, there are times when an obstacle may be left in a walkway, a wet floor may be unattended, a stair breaks, or there is uneven pavement that doesn’t have the proper warnings.
There are so many different scenarios that can lead to a slip and fall. If it has happened to you or a loved one, you may be able to hold the property owner responsible for the negligence that led to the fall. To do this, your Minnesota personal injury lawyer will review your case and, if you have a case, the next steps can then be taken toward securing the monetary compensation you need to pay accident-related expenses.
Holding Negligent Parties Accountable
Slip and fall accidents can occur in or around the homes of others, retail stores, malls schools, office buildings, and virtually anywhere. In order to file a successful personal injury claim, the victim must prove that any of the following occurred:
- The property owner or manager was aware of the existence of the danger that caused the accident. This can include a step that was obviously faulty, an escalator that had not been operating well for a while, a leak that consistently causes a floor to get wet when it rains, a spill that the owner or property manager was aware of and did not clean it up or post the proper warnings.
- The property owner or manager had adequate time to fix the problem before the victim’s accident occurred.
It is important to prove these factors in order to have a strong case. Kirk Anderson works very hard to uncover the facts and to secure the proof needed to recover meaningful compensation. He is a personal injury lawyer you want by your side when you need a solution.
Helping You Move Forward
Recovering compensation means an opportunity to move forward. While money doesn’t rectify the accident that caused the injury or take away any emotional or physical damage, it does relieve financial stress. The compensation can cover your present and future medical expenses, present and future lost wages, and other applicable costs. You didn’t do anything to cause the accident, so you shouldn’t have to pay for it.
