Slip and Fall Lawyer
Serving Minneapolis / St. Paul and Surrounding Areas
“Slip and fall” is a term for a personal injury case where a person slips and/or falls as a result of a negligent, dangerous, or hazardous condition on someone else’s property.
Property owners are negligent when they are aware that there is a safety issue and they do nothing to fix the problem or if they have not properly educated themselves on the dangers of different aspects of their property.
Dangerous conditions such as torn carpeting, abrupt changes in flooring, poor lighting, narrow stairs or a wet floor can cause a slip and fall. Outside a building, one may slip and fall because of rain, ice, snow or a hidden hazard, such as a gap or hard to see pothole in the ground. Slip and fall accidents can occur on commercial, residential or public property. Regardless of where they happen, all property or building owners have a certain level of responsibility (duty of care) to make sure an environment is safe.
