Our Lawyers Represent People Injured From Slip Fall Accidents in Anoka Champlin Coon Rapids Minnesota.
Our attorneys answer many calls from people in Anoka, Champlin, and Coon Rapids who have been injured in an accident as they are going into or out of a business or apartment building because they slipped and fell on ice on the sidewalk of a store or mall, or in the parking lot. We also frequently represent people with homeowners insurance claims because of a slip fall or tripped and fell accident at someone’s house.
You may have heard that the property owner is automatically responsible and want to know if a lawyer 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. Unfortunately, that is not actually correct. The property owner is not automatically responsible just because the accident happened on their property and you were injured.
WHEN IS PROPERTY OWNER RESPONSIBLE
A property owner is only responsible for a slip and fall accident injury if they or an employee (or family member) did something to create the condition or failed to clean it up within a reasonable time. Where ice has formed because of a snowfall the night before, the property owner is generally allowed to wait 24 hours after it has stopped snowing before clearing the snow and removing the ice.
These are challenges an experienced slip fall lawyer deals 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 – which actually does pay a small amount of medical bills automatically, and we can help you with that as well.
If you or a family member are injured in a slip and fall accident in Anoka, Champlin, or Coon Rapids, please make sure that you get lots of photos of the area where you fell and get the name and contact information of any witnesses. Then please call us as soon as possible so that a top Minnesota lawyer can start investigating your case and explain your rights to you.
