SLIP FALL INJURY LAWYERS FOR MINNEAPOLIS MN
Because we live in a state with snow and ice, we in Minnesota always try to be careful to avoid slip and fall accidents. Unfortunately, an accident because you slipped on ice can happen anyway, sometimes resulting in a serious injury. When our best lawyers take a new slip fall case in MN, the most common defense we hear from insurance companies is that our clients should have watched where they were going and been more careful. However, there are occasions where businesses or homeowners allow snow and ice to build up, causing even the most careful pedestrian to fall and injure their self. Sometimes these falls result in serious and permanent injuries.
