Helping the Injured Back on Their Feet for Over 20 Years
Slip and fall incidents are quite common across Minnesota, especially during the winter months. Store owners and companies are responsible for keeping the inside and the outside of their store safe and often the cold weather will bring heavy rain, ice and snow, all of which can cause a greater risk of falls. Parking lots are often slippery as are stairs leading to the premises and often the front area will be covered in melted snow and wet patches, making it dangerous and easy for customers to slip. If you have suffered a slip and fall incident in a store, then you do have legal rights.
Slip and fall incidents can also occur on the sidewalk and public areas and often the council will be responsible for keeping these areas safe. Open drains, pot holes and rough patches should be corrected or properly fenced to ensure that no one hurts themselves. Even if you slip and fall at your neighbor’s house, whether you take a tumble down the stairs or slip around the backyard pool, you have rights and could be eligible for a liability claim.
Premises liability injuries often involve lengthy recovery time and unexpected medical related costs. Slip and fall incidents can result in:
- Hip and shoulder complications
- Pelvic injuries
- Broken bones
- Back pain
- Skull fractures
You could be looking at months of time off work and the need for 24 hour care as well as medical equipment to help you around the house. These costs should not be left up to you, not when the owner of the property, whether it is the council or a company, is liable for your injury.
