Was there a condition which the property owner should have known of and corrected? Wisconsin has a “safe place” statute that we utilize whenever possible to see that you are compensated for your losses. Although there is no precise way to determine when a property owner is legally responsible for a visitor’s injury in a slip and fall accident, our experienced attorneys will review the circumstances of your situation and help make that assessment with you. Dangerous conditions such as defective stairs/handrails, uneven sidewalks, torn carpeting or poor lighting can make a property owner responsible for your injury. Particularly in Wisconsin, icy conditions due to snow and ice which should have been removed by property owners may result in compensable claims.
In order to obtain a settlement for a slip and fall injury which occurred on someone else’s property, there must be a responsible party whose negligence caused the injury. Sometimes, accidents and injuries happen and no one is at fault. However, if an injured person is only partially at fault for their own injury, he or she might still be able to recover damages from another party. As you can see, liability can be difficult to prove. We accept these types of cases on a contingent (percentage) fee basis, so that you do not pay a lawyer’s fee if we aren’t successful in obtaining money for you.
