SLIP FALL ACCIDENT IN PLYMOUTH OR MAPLE GROVE MN INJURY LAWYERS
Every year, our attorneys get calls from people in Plymouth and Maple Grove MN, who have been injured in an accident after they slipped on ice in a parking lot of a store or mall, or on the sidewalk as they are going into or out of a business or apartment building. Often, people just want to know if a lawyer can get their medical bills paid or their sick leave for work reimbursed or get compensated for lost wages / unpaid time off from work because of the slip and fall accident.
You may have heard that the property owner is automatically responsible if you are injured on their property. Unfortunately, this is not exactly accurate. A property owner in Minnesota is not automatically responsible just because the accident happened on their property and you were injured. The property owner is only responsible if they or their employees did something to create the condition or failed to clean it up within a reasonable time. When ice or a slippery condition has formed because of a snow fall 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 MN slip and fall attorneys have experience dealing with, and we know what to look for to prove your case. In addition, many businesses and homeowners have medical payment coverage as part of their insurance policies, and we can help you with that as well.
