Our Lawyers Represent People Injured From Slip Fall Accident in Eagan and Woodbury Minnesota.
Our attorneys get many calls from people in Eagan Minnesota and Woodbury, who have been injured in an accident after they slipped 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.
Eagan and Woodbury are constantly getting new construction, including office buildings and stores, where many people in the community work and shop. People are out and about year round, obviously including in the winter – and so there are accidents and injuries. You may have heard that the property owner is automatically responsible if you are injured on their property. Often, people just want to know if a top lawyer can get their medical bills paid or their sick leave reimbursed or get compensated for lost wages / unpaid time off from work after a slip and fall accident.
IS THE PROPERTY OWNER RESPONSIBLE?
Unfortunately, the property owner is not automatically responsible just because the slip fall accident happened on their property and you were injured. This is true in Woodbury, Eagan, and other cities throughout MN. The property owner is only responsible if they or their staff did something to create the condition or failed to clean it up within a reasonable time that caused a person to fall and get injured. For example, where ice has formed or the sidewalk 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 and removing the ice.
These are challenges our best slip and fall MN lawyers have experience dealing with and we know what to look for to prove your case. In addition, many businesses and homeowners have optional medical payment coverage as part of their insurance policies (which pays without having to prove fault), and a lawyer can help you with that as well.
