Determining liability in Milwaukee trip and fall accidents
If you suffer an injury in a slip and fall or trip and fall accident, a knowledgeable attorney can help you discover who is responsible. Slip and fall accidents occur when a surface is slippery or wet. This can be the result of ice or a spilled food product. A trip and fall accident happens when a surface is uneven. For example, if a floor tile is not level or cracked, a person can easily trip and fall and suffer catastrophic injury or death.
Understanding the difference between these two types of accidents is the first step in determining who caused your accident. Next, with the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney, you can determine if the building owner or landlord is responsible. These individuals have a duty to ensure that their premises are safe and free of hazards.
A property owner is at fault for any injuries you sustain on his or her property if:
- Your injury is caused by a dangerous condition, like broken steps, a torn carpet or an uneven surface, and this danger existed because the landlord or property owner failed to fix it
- The building management company or landlord does not regularly maintain and inspect his or her properties to ensure they are safe for tenants
- There was no warning sign indicating the hazard existed
- Poor lighting caused you to slip and fall
- An object or debris that should not have been in your path caused you to trip and fall
Like most personal injury cases, proving negligence is key to winning a slip and fall claim. Our Milwaukee trip and fall accident lawyers work fast to gather evidence and build a solid a case so you can obtain the compensation you need.
