Premises liability lawsuits arise out of a variety of circumstances, and a wide range of injuries. Many injuries on premises are caused by the negligence of the property owner or property manager. When sidewalks aren't cleared of ice and snow, when decks are improperly built, when spills in store aisles aren't cleaned up, and when dog owners fail to protect others from an attack, people are often hurt.
Our premises liability attorneys represent clients in a wide variety of premises liability cases, including:
Unfortunately, living in Minnesota means walking on surfaces covered in ice and snow. However, most public places have a duty to make sure walkways are safe and usable. We have successfully represented clients suffering serous injuries because of falling on ice or snow where property maintenance was neglected. Other slip and fall accidents occur because of broken steps, unlit stairwells, uneven flooring or obstacles which cause people to trip and fall. Falls can cause serious injuries including spine injuries, head injuries and broken hips, wrists and arms. If you were injured in a slip and fall accident caused by dangerous conditions or a property owner's negligence, we will fight to obtain the compensation you deserve for your losses.
We also regularly represent clients injured by vicious and unconfined dogs. In one recent case, we were able to secure a six-figure settlement for a dog-bite victim. Dog owners are required to keep control of their pets, especially if they know their dog has a tendency to be violent toward people. Dog attacks can result in serious injuries, including loss of eyesight, loss of limbs, and serious disfigurement. If you were the victim of a dog attack or your child is a dog-bite victim, we will pursue every avenue available to secure financial compensation for you.
