Owners Must Maintain Their Properties
Many people mistakenly blame themselves for a slip and fall injury that occur on others’ property. They end up paying thousands for medical bills, insurance payments and suffer lost wages from missing work. They criticize themselves for “not being careful enough” and are often embarrassed and angry about the injuries they sustained. Under Wisconsin law, property owners have a responsibility to keep their property safe and understand. If they fail to do so, and if that failure causes injury, property owners can be held liable in Wisconsin courts.
