"ensured a fair settlement"

Tom and his associates were very professional and helped us battle a lengthy car accident claim. His office was very easy to work with and took on all of the work to ensure that we received a fair settlement. I would never attempt to work with an insurance company alone going forward. Highly recommend Tom!!

"highly recommend"

I completed an information request on their website late one evening. I did not expect to hear from anyone until the next day at the very earliest. Lawyer Tom reached out within about 15 minutes! I highly recommend Bennerotte and Associates. Tom and Sue were a pleasure to work with. They were able to settle cases for both me and my daughter.

Three Important Steps After a Slip and Fall Injury

After a slip and fall in a store or public place, there are three things that should be done as soon as possible:

incident report after fall injury

1 Report / Document the Injury

Report the injury to the owner or manager, and follow up with an email. Typically an incident report is filled out, if possible, get a copy of the incident report. Regardless of the conditions that contributed to your fall, like a wet floor, obstructed walkway, etc., take photos of the area where you fell.


seek medical attention

2 Seek Medical Attention

Even if you do not know how you will pay for the medical attention it’s critical that you seek medical care and get examined.

Conditions the Insurance Company May Try to Use Against You

Once the insurance companies are aware of your claim, they will go to almost any length to delay, devalue or even outright deny your claim. They will request your medical records and look for any possible excuse to say the fall was your fault, and not their client’s (the store or other public place where you were injured).

Work with a lawyer before and get the upper hand on the insurance companies. You can start with a free consultation, and you only pay attorneys fees AFTER we successfully make a recovery on your behalf.

Minnesota Lawyer for Dangerous Conditions

A business or property owner has the responsibility to provide a reasonably safe environment to its customers or patrons. If it fails to meet that responsibility and someone is injured, the business may be financially liable.  When someone is injured due to a dangerous condition at a business a claim may be filed with the business’ insurance company for benefits which may include compensation for missed time from work, medical bills, and pain and suffering. 

There are No “Simple” Injury Claims

Premise liability issues and dealing with insurance companies is a complex process.  The reality is that the insurance company’s interests differ from your own, regardless of how simple the claim may seem.  This is why it is extremely important for you to consult with an attorney to make sure your legal rights and interests are protected. 

Work with an Experienced Injury Attorney to Resolve Your Claim

When you work with the legal team at Bennerotte & Associates, you send a serious message to the insurance companies that you will not settle for less than your injury claim is worth. If the insurance company questions the seriousness of the injury to minimize your payment, we will obtain an independent and objective medical evaluation.  We stay a step ahead of the insurance companies and don’t stop fighting until we win.  

Injuries in Grocery Stores, Malls and Other Places

Regardless of where your injury took place, the business has a duty to provide a safe environment clear of spills or other potential hazards.  Uneven walkways, unmarked hazzards, spills and failing to clear snow and ice can all lead to a premise liability injury.

Twin Cities Slip and Fall Injury Attorney

Premises liability cases and slip-and-fall cases involve accidents that occur due to negligent maintenance or unsafe and dangerous conditions on a property owned by someone other than the accident victim. Property owners and business establishments have a duty to provide a safe environment for individuals on their premises.

Common situations giving rise to premises accidents include uneven floor surfaces, poorly marked changes in elevation, slippery surfaces, buildup of ice or snow, broken sidewalks, uneven elevators and broken steps.

When accidents or injuries occur to visitors or tenants, the owner of the property may be legally responsible if it was negligence or recklessness that led to the injury. We are committed to identifying the exact nature of the property owner's negligence and establishing how this negligence caused our clients' injuries.

THE BASIC TYPES OF SLIP, TRIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS

  • Slip-and-fall — Due to a wet, icy or slippery substance on the floor or a store, building, parking lot or sidewalk.
  • Trip-and-fall — As the result of an uneven sidewalk, an elevator which is not level with the floor it stops on or an object such as a box located in the aisle of store.
  • Step-and-fall — Most frequently occurring when someone steps into a hole in the ground which they would not expect, such as a pothole or uncovered manhole.

Falls on Snow & Ice

accidents on snow and ice minnesota lawyer for injury

In Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa we have the added challenge of snow and ice. While the snow and ice bring a challenge to everyone, the business are still responsible to provide clear and safe walkways. Snow and ice claims will typically be denied by the insurance company by blaming the person who was injured or stating that the business did not have enough time to clear the snow or ice.

We have a history of success with snow and ice injury claims because we go the extra mile to show that the hazard could have and should have been cleared. Don’t settle for less than you deserve just because you fell on ice. Call our slip and fall lawyers for a free consultation today.
