Our Lawyers Represent People Injured From Slip Fall Accident in Chaska MN, Chanhassen, and Norwood Young America Minnesota.
Our top injury attorneys frequently get calls from people in Chaska Minnesota, Chanhassen and Norwood Young America, who have been injured in an accident because 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. There has been a lot of retail development in Chanhassen MN and Chaska, including office buildings where many in the community work. People are out shopping and working year round, including winter. So there has been a lot of opportunity for slip fall accident injury cases.
Many people have heard that the owner is automatically responsible if you are injured on their property and want to get your medical bills paid or sick leave reimbursed or get compensated for lost wages / unpaid time off from work because of the slip and fall accident.
Actually, in Minnesota, a property owner is not automatically responsible just because you were injured on their property. The owner of the property is only responsible if they or their employees did something to create the condition or failed to clean it up within a reasonable time. For example, where ice has formed because of a snow-fall the night before, or if the snow is still falling during the day, the property owner is allowed to wait a reasonable time after it has stopped snowing before clearing the snow and removing the ice. Therefore, it is very difficult to sue the property owner unless the ice and snow have been on the ground for an extended period of time without effort to clean them up. These are challenges our top MN personal injury lawyers have experience dealing with and we know what to look for to prove your case.
However, many businesses and homeowners have medical payment coverage as part of their insurance policies. Medical payment coverage is not required, but is very common in property insurance policies, and will pay a limited amount of medical bills without proving the property owner was at fault. Our best Minnesota slip fall accident lawyer can help you with that as well.
