Advocates For St. Paul Slip-And-Fall Accident Victims
In Minnesota, we have all experienced the surprise of slipping on an icy sidewalk. When a slip or trip from dangerous conditions causes a person to fall down, the potential for serious personal injury is profound. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury in the United States. Other serious injuries include broken hips, broken bones, back injuries and debilitating injuries involving the knees, other joints and limbs.
If hazardous conditions are allowed to remain on a property, the property owner, manager, entity, government agency or person responsible for the property may be accountable for damages in a premises liability claim.
Often, accident victims are not aware that they may be able to hold a negligent property owner accountable for failing to warn of or repair a hazard that the party knew or should have known existed. Some people are concerned about suing a neighbor or a business they care about. In reality, these claims are generally brought against the insurance companies. If you have suffered injury on someone else’s property, you owe it to yourself to learn your rights.
