Premises Liability

Minnesota Premises Liability Lawyer & Attorney

“Premises” means a house or building, together with its land and outbuildings. If you are injured at a business or someone’s house, anywhere on their property, you are injured on their premises. The owner of a premises has a legal duty to keep the premises reasonably safe for people invited onto the premises. When the owner is negligent in this duty, the owner (or insurance company) can be required to compensate the person who has been injured because of this negligence. For more information about these types of cases, see What happens if I am injured on someone else’s property?

Because the law in Minnesota generally favors business owners and homeowners over the victims of an injury on property, many lawyers will not handle these types of cases. It’s definitely not as simple as saying the property owner is automatically responsible when someone is injured on their premises.  At the Rochlin Law Firm, Ltd. we have successfully handled numerous injury cases involving injuries occurring on the property of a homeowner or business. This includes slip and fall injuries, trip and fall injuries, and many other types of injuries that can occur on other people’s premises. (In the picture above, we represented a young man who was injured when he stepped out on the second floor balcony of his apartment, and the deck collapsed.) If you have been injured on someone’s property, please contact our firm to discuss your potential case with a lawyer.
