Claims against government entities are often ruled by different timetables and we understand the special requirements of these cases.
Causes of slip and fall injuries
There are many conditions that could result in a slip and fall injury. Our law firm has handled cases involving:
- Slippery floors
- Broken sidewalks, curbs and potholes
- Weak or broken stairs and stair rails
- Unmarked breaks in floors
- Loose rugs
- Falling debris on construction sites
- Product falling from store shelves
- Inadequate lighting or burnt-out bulbs that obscure defects
In Minnesota and Wisconsin, thousands of people are injured every year from ice and snow that should have been treated or shoveled. Many more are hurt when water on floors is not removed in a timely way. Whatever the cause, slip and fall accidents can lead to serious injuries, including broken bones, spinal cord injuries as well as head and neck injuries.
