Who Pays Medical Bills for Slip-and-Fall Accidents?

Sometimes you might be at risk for injury simply from venturing outside your own home, perhaps to a Wisconsin shopping mall or even to a company picnic or private party at the home of an acquaintance. When you step foot on another person’s property, the owner of that property is obligated to make sure it is kept in a safe condition to help any and all guests to the property to avoid injury. Slip-and-fall accidents can occur when property owners fail to fulfill their responsibilities.

Let’s say you are walking through a shopping mall and you hit a wet spot on the floor. One moment you’re looking at the latest trendy outfits in the windows of your favorite shop; the next thing you know you’re lying flat on your back in a lot of pain. Mall security contacts local emergency medical technicians, and before you know it you are riding on a stretcher in the back of an ambulance, on your way to the nearest hospital.

Whether you suffered a severely sprained ankle or broke a bone, twisted your back or hurt something else, your next days, weeks or even months may be filled with repeated medical visits, physical therapy and challenges that arise during recovery. Depending on the severity of your injury, you may have to take quite a bit of time off work in order to fully recover. Such situations can place undue financial hardships on those who are already suffering.

When slip-and-fall accidents are deemed to have been caused by property owners’ negligence, injured victims may pursue legal recourse against those deemed responsible. Filing a premises liability claim in a Wisconsin civil court can be complicated. The Law Offices of Robert A. Levine are fully prepared to guide you through the entire process.
