Representing The Victims Of Slips And Falls In Minneapolis
“I’m so clumsy I trip over my own two feet”.
Sometimes, that is the case when someone falls down. However, far too often, slips, trips and falls are the results of negligence and are entirely preventable. When we leave our homes, we place our safety in the hands of individual homeowners, businesses and other property owners in our communities. When they fail to care for their property or warn us of hazards, their negligence can result in serious injuries.
Property owners are responsible for maintaining safe premises. That responsibility includes taking care of things like icy sidewalks, wet floors, tripping hazards and dilapidated stairs. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a slip-and-fall accident in Minneapolis, you should not have to bear the physical and financial burden alone. The personal injury lawyers of Nicolet Law Office, can help you get the full financial compensation you deserve for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages.
We Love To Walk
One of the great things about Minneapolis is how walkable it is. Whether you are enjoying the scenes along the Mississippi River, shopping on Nicollet Mall or exploring the food scene, chances are you are spending a lot of time on foot. That means your safety is largely in the hands of the city’s property owners, city maintenance workers and others we trust to maintain safe premises. Slipping on a wet floor or falling as a result of a loose railing can do more than ruin a day on the town, it can make your life harder for weeks, months or years. You should not have to bear that burden alone.
Who’s Fault Is It?
Sometimes, accidents just happen; that’s why they’re called accidents. However, there are times where liability is clear. For example, a shop owner should know that having a downspout empty directly on the sidewalk near their front entrance is a recipe for disaster during the winter. Likewise, it is reasonable to expect a grocery store to set out a “wet floor” sign within minutes of a spill taking place. Property owners are responsible for taking care of such hazards or at least warning their patrons and the public of their presence.
