Minnesota Premises Liability Lawyer & Attorney

A ‘Premises’ includes both the interior and exterior of a house or building. If you are injured anywhere on the property of someone’s house, it means you are injured on their premises. Our injury lawyers handle premises cases throughout Minnesota.

The owner of a premises has a legal duty to keep their property safe for people they invite there. This duty includes complying with the MN Building Code, and ensuring the property is in a safe condition.

When the owner does not keep the property safe, they (or more likely their insurance company) can be held responsible. In other words, the property owner can be required to compensate the person who has been injured. This compensation includes medical bills, lost wages, and more. For more information about these types of cases, see What happens if I am injured on someone else’s property?

Unfortunately, Minnesota law generally favors business owners and homeowners over victims who are injured on property. As a result, many lawyers will not take injured on property cases. There is a common belief that a property owner is automatically responsible when someone is injured on their premises. However, that is not true. Nonetheless, the property owner is responsible if they did something wrong or failed to do something they should have done. Therefore, premises cases can be important, particularly if a person is seriously injured.
