Our Lawyers Represent People Injured From Slipped Fell Accident in Lakeville and Apple Valley Minnesota.
Our attorneys often are called by people from Apple Valley and Lakeville MN who have been injured when they slipped and fell. They were either going into or out of a business or apartment building, or by falling on ice in the parking lot of a store or mall, or on the sidewalk. The first question usually asked to the slip fall accident injury lawyer is whether the property owner is responsible.
Most people have heard that the property owner is automatically responsible if you are injured on their property. They therefore want to know if an attorney can get your medical bills paid or your sick leave reimbursed or get compensated for lost wages / unpaid time off from work because of the slip and fall accident injury.
HOLDING PROPERTY OWNER RESPONSIBLE
Unfortunately, the property owner is not automatically responsible just because you were injured in an accident that happened on their property. The property owner is only responsible if they or their workers did something to create the condition or failed to clean it up within a reasonable time. For example, where ice or a slippery condition has formed 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. Plus, they always have the defense that you should have been more careful and watched where you were going.
