What To Know About Premises Liability In Minnesota
Property owners, managers or tenants renting a property have an obligation to keep it as safe as possible. They have a duty to perform certain actions, including:
- Inspecting the grounds regularly
- Maintaining the premises
- Posting warning signs of potential hazards
If there is evidence that a property owner or someone else in control of the premises was supposed to know about a hazard or knew about it and did not remedy it, there may be an actionable case. Any victims who suffered an accident on the property may have the right to seek compensation.
Common Causes Of Slip-And-Fall Accidents
After car accidents, slip-and-falls are the most common form of personal injury. We can represent you if you experienced an accident based on:
- Slippery flooring
- Merchandise or other clutter on the floor
- Inadequate signage to warn you
- Precariously stacked shelves
- Cracked, broken or uneven flooring
- Poorly maintained stairs
- Unsafe guardrails or handrails
- Defective or malfunctioning elevators and escalators
- Fallen branches and other debris
- Loose electrical cords
You should always consult a lawyer who has handled many personal injury cases successfully. It is of utmost importance to gather evidence quickly following an accident before the property owner tries to fix it to cover it up. Our attorneys know how to jump into action swiftly to investigate the scene and gather relevant evidence.
