Slips, Trips & Falls

MINNEAPOLIS SLIP AND FALL INJURY ATTORNEY

Premises liability cases, commonly referred to as 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 topremises 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.
