Experience In All Types Of Slip And Fall Cases
There are many types of slip and fall cases. Sometimes the accidents occur at work and sometimes they occur in a retail store or on someone’s property. In the case that the accident occurs at work, the injured employee has options. An injury claim can be brought against the employer, but they have to forego the workers’ compensation claim. Your attorney will be able to discuss your options with you so you can decide what you would like to do.
In the case of property owner or retailer negligence leading to a slip and fall accident, either party can be held negligence. These accidents tend to be the result of slippery floors not having the proper warnings in place and trip hazards being left in the way. Damaged stairs, escalators, and stair railings are also causes for falls.
If the property owner or individuals in charge were aware of the danger, such as a faulty step, and had not posted warnings or taken action to fix the problem, they could be held liable. Those responsible can also be held responsible if they had sufficient time to fix the issue before the accident occurred.
When you work with an experienced Minnesota personal injury lawyer, you will be given compassionate and understanding representation. You will be presented with your options so you can make informed decisions. In the meantime, we do all of the legal work so you can receive the compensation you need for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Even if the injuries will completely heal with time, you can still seek compensation for the financial damages that have been done to you. Regardless of how severe or minor the injury, your insurance company may refuse to pay for your medical treatment because someone else is responsible. They want the responsible party’s insurance to pay, so we will negotiate with them. If a settlement can’t be reached, then we can move forward with trial so you can get a positive result.
