When you enter a store or another property, you expect to come out in the same condition you went in. Instead, a hazard caused you to fall and that has resulted in a great deal of pain and distress for you because of the injuries that you sustained.
All property owners, whether they are residential or commercial have a responsibility for ensuring the safety of every person who enters their property. When a property owner allows dangerous conditions on their property or they allow the property fall into a state of disrepair, accidents are very likely. The most common of these accidents is the slip and fall.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident because of someone’s negligence, you may be able to hold them liable for the financial damages done to you. To know your rights and options, you can enlist the legal assistance of an experienced Mankato personal injury attorney to help you build your claim and get results.
Experience With All Types Of Slip & Fall Injuries
Slip and falls may seem simple, but the cases can be quite complicated. This is why it is important to have an experienced attorney working with you every step of the way. Your attorney will work to build your case by thoroughly investigating the matter so that the following can be proven:
- That the property owner was aware of the danger that caused the accident and did nothing to rectify the issue prior to the accident
- That the property owner had sufficient time to fix the issue before the accident occurred
These accidents can be caused because of wet floors, water pooling in an area, untreated ice patches, uneven flooring, broken stair railings, broken steps, trip hazards in the way, and more. Most of the time, the fixes are not expensive and do not take a lot of time to repair, so they are heavily preventable.
Seeking The Proper Compensation For You
We can negotiate with the insurance company to secure a settlement for you that will pay for your medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more. It is important that you receive the compensation that you deserve so you can focus on healing and not the financial stresses that the accident has placed on you. If the insurance company does not offer enough for a settlement, then the case can be taken to trial where your interests will be thoroughly represented, resulting in a jury award that can pay for your current and future expenses while you focus on recovering.
