Premises Liability in Minnesota
A slippery floor or an unsafe railing can change a life in an instant. A slip, a trip, or a fall can cause permanent injuries, mountainous medical bills and lost wages. If you have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident caused by someone else's negligence, call SiebenCarey to talk to a premises liability attorney.
A slip-and-fall injury can be caused by a wide range of hazards; poor maintenance, poor design of facilities or simple inattention to obvious hazards.
In Minnesota, we are habitually careful about walking on snow and ice. There are times, however, when a property owner has failed to correct conditions that make snow and ice more dangerous - a downspout that drains onto a parking lot and creates an ice hazard, a leaky gutter, or an uneven sidewalk hidden by snow.
Retail stores can be dangerous premises -- a leaky freezer or cooler in a grocery, a spill on the floor in a store or restaurant or an unstable or poorly stacked merchandise display in a store can all cause serious injuries to customers.
Unsafe decks or un-sturdy railings can trigger dangerous falls. At an apartment building, a home or in a hotel - defectively designed, inadequately built or poorly maintained facilities can cause serious injuries.
Premises liability holds property owners responsible when a person is injured on their property due to a dangerous or unsafe condition. Most properties have safety codes that require owners to avoid exposing people to harm or risk. When an owner fails to protect people on his or her premises and someone is injured, then the owner has been negligent. Victims injured by negligence on someone else's property have the right to make a claim against the property owner.
