Our personal injury lawyers frequently get calls from people in Burnsville Minnesota, Bloomington, and Richfield MN, who have been injured in an accident by slipping on ice in the parking lot of a store or mall, or on the sidewalk as they are going into or out of a business or apartment building, or someone’s house.

You may have heard that the property owner is automatically responsible if someone is injured on their property and you want to know if our injury lawyers can get your medical bills paid or your sick leave reimbursed or get you compensation for lost wages / unpaid time off from work because of the slip and fall accident.
Unfortunately, the property owner is not automatically responsible just because you were injured on their property. The property owner is only responsible if they or their employees did something to create the dangerous condition or failed to fix it or clean it up within a reasonable time. Where ice has formed or the ground is slippery because of a snowfall the night before, the property owner is allowed to wait a reasonable time after it has stopped snowing before clearing the snow, removing the ice or sanding and salting. These are challenges our Minnesota slip fall accident lawyers have experience dealing with, and we know what to look for to prove your case.
Our top lawyers in MN have also represented many people who have been injured because they tripped on something in a store or office building that should not have been there, e.g. an empty pallet. We have had many of these slipped in fell injury cases in Richfield, Bloomington MN, Burnsville, and throughout the state.
Although there is not automatic liability by law for a slip fall injury, many businesses and homeowners have medical payment coverage as part of their insurance policies, which does pay a limited about of medical bills for any injury on the property regardless of fault, and we can help you with that as well.
