Who is liable for slip and fall accidents?

As a Wisconsin property owner, you are obligated to make sure the outside and inside of your business or home are safe for those who visit you or patronize your shop. Similarly, when you enter a store, government building or another person's private residence, the owner or landlord of the property must inform you of any possible hazards that may be present at the time, such as debris that could cause slip and fall accidents. If something happens to cause you injury, and you learn that the property owner knew of the issue but never told you or did anything to remove the danger, that person may be legally liable for your injury.

If you go a festival or concert in the park where the lighting is very poor, it may cause you to stumble and fall. Such falls can cause moderate to severe injuries that require extensive recuperation in order to achieve the fullest physical healing possible. Many times, repeat visits to a physical therapist may also be necessary for healing, and there's no secret how expensive that type of care can be.

Knowing that a property owner could have done something to keep you safe but didn't can be very frustrating. A key factor in achieving a quick resolution to a problem often lies in the the type of support you seek and the options you have for rectifying a particular situation. One such way for doing so in many situations is to discuss a particular problem with an experienced premises liability attorney.

The Law Offices of Robert A. Levine in Wisconsin can assist those who have suffered injuries in slip and fall accidents. If you believe another person's negligence resulted in your injury, you can seek recovery for you losses in a civil court. Discussing the details of your particular incident with an experienced attorney is a good starting point for activating a premises liability claim.
