Homeowner Liability

Minneapolis & St. Paul Homeowner Liability Lawyer

Homeowners have a responsibility to ensure their property is in good repair. If there is a slip hazard, such as an icy sidewalk and a visitor slips and falls, then the homeowner can be held liable for the financial damages caused by the injuries in that accident.

If you were injured at a friend’s party, your child was injured on your neighbor’s swing set, or a household family member was injured on another person’s property in some way, you and your Minneapolis personal injury lawyer may be able to bring a premises liability lawsuit against them.

Experience With All Types Of Homeowner Liability Cases

Homeowner liability or property liability cases involve any serious injury resulting from an accident that occurs on another person’s property. These accident types include:

  • Trampoline accidents
  • Animal attacks and dog bites
  • Pool injuries and drowning
  • Balcony and deck collapses
  • Burn injuries
  • Electrical shock
  • Slips and falls due to faulty staircases, poor lighting, or slippery surfaces

If you have sustained any of these injuries or you are the loved one of someone who was killed in a property liability matter, then you may be able to receive compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other related costs. The accident wasn’t your fault, so you should not have to sustain the blow of unexpected costs.

Successful Negotiation With Insurance Companies

At Swor & Gatto, we have successfully negotiated with insurance companies again and again. Homeowners have liability insurance as a part of their homeowners’ insurance policy. It is required. Renters may also have liability insurance when they purchase renter’s insurance. If they haven’t, then the landlord or property owner will have the required coverage.

Unfortunately, insurance companies may only try to offer you the minimum amount possible. This amount is hardly ever enough to cover medical bills and other related costs. That is why you need an experienced Minnesota personal injury lawyer working with you to negotiate with the insurance company so you can get the money that you need to pay for the expenses. If the insurance company does not want to settle or they don’t offer enough, the case can go to trial if you wish. This will help you put the matter past you so you can heal and have a better quality of life.
