Slip-and-fall accidents: Is your party host liable?

As summer winds down in Wisconsin, many people are hosting backyard parties for friends, family, co-workers and neighbors. It can be a lot of fun to grill some burgers, toss back a few cold ones and perhaps even try your hand at a game of lawn darts. However, slip-and-fall accidents have a way of putting a damper on outdoor social events.

If a property owner was negligent and you, your spouse or your child suffered an injury because of it, there is no reason your family should bear the full financial burden associated with the incident. Twisted ankles, for instance, typically necessitate X-rays and if there is even a hairline fracture, the attending physician may recommend putting on a hard cast for four to six weeks. This, of course, would require repeated medical visits, which are quite expensive.

Suffering bodily injury in a fall can also cause you to have to miss work. Even if you were not the one who was injured, you might have to take time off to care for your spouse or your child during recovery. For many people, missed work means no pay.

The Law Offices of Robert A. Levine provide support to Wisconsin residents who suffer injuries in slip-and-fall accidents. The plaintiff in a premises liability case is responsible for substantiating his or her claim.
