When A Store Is Liable For Your Accident In Minnesota

Store owners and managers have a certain amount of responsibility to keep their premises reasonably safe for visitors and guests. When a shopper or another visitor is injured and the accident was the store’s fault, you have every right to expect fair compensation.

Falls in stores are a common occurrence and they can result in severe injuries. If you’ve been injured in a slip-and-fall accident in Minnesota, we can help. At Bennerotte & Associates, P.A., we have a dedicated team of premises liability attorneys who can help the victims of store accidents in Eagan, Apple Valley, Inver Grove Heights and Rosemount.

Liability For Falls In Minnesota Stores

Any failure in a store owner’s or manager’s duty to keep their premises safe could result in severe injuries. To be successful in a premises liability claim, you’ll need to show that the store owner was negligent.

Some of the most common causes of injuries in stores and public premises include:

  • Spillages on floors that have not been cleaned
  • Uneven and poorly maintained floors
  • A lack of wet floor signs
  • Poorly lit interior and exterior areas
  • Parking lots that have not been cleared of snow and ice
  • Negligent security measures
  • Broken steps and missing handrails
  • Aisles that are littered with clutter

Victims suffer all kinds of injuries in premises liability claims, including broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, facial injuries, hand injuries and more.

Seeking Just Compensation For Your Injuries

If you suffered injuries and your accident was the store owner’s fault, it is important that you have legal guidance before talking to insurance adjusters. Generally, insurers will try to get you to accept a lowball offer – if they are willing to negotiate directly with you at all. Some may simply delay or deny your claim outright.

At Bennerotte & Associates, P.A., we’ll fight to get you the compensation that you deserve. This will help with lost wages, medical costs and other associated expenses.
