Premises Liability Law in Minnesota

Property owners and people in control of property, such as tenants and managers, have a legal duty to keep their property reasonably safe. This includes regularly inspecting the property, performing necessary maintenance, and warning of any remaining hazards. If a property owner knew or should have known of a dangerous condition and failed to fix the situation or provide warnings to others, victims injured because of the condition may seek recovery for their injuries in a premises liability action.

Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents

Premises liability litigation often arises from slip and fall or trip and fall accidents, which are the most common cause of personal injury after automobile accidents. We can help if you were injured because of any of the following dangerous conditions:

  • Spills and fallen merchandise in store aisles
  • Failure to post proper warning signs about spills or slick surfaces
  • Unsafely stacked shelves
  • Uneven pavement or flooring, including carpet
  • Defective stairways and damaged steps
  • Obstructions on stairs
  • Faulty handrails and guardrails
  • Unsafe balconies and balcony railings
  • Improperly leveled elevators
  • Malfunctioning escalators
  • Unsecured electrical cords
  • Fallen trees and tree branches
  • Defective or slippery sidewalks

After a slip and fall or trip and fall accident, it is important to contact a personal injury lawyer right away. Because dangerous conditions are often easily fixable, gathering evidence as quickly as possible after an accident can be critical to building a strong personal injury claim. We are committed to efficiently and thoroughly investigating accidents in order to maximize our clients' chances of recovery.
