Slip & Falls
Slip & fall, or other accidents on someone else’s property, can cause serious injuries.
Property owners who are negligent in taking care of their property are liable for the injuries which result from dangerous conditions on their property, such as: wet or slippery floors; accumulation of snow or ice or rain water or other hazards, broken or missing handrails; poorly lit or unlit hallways or stairways; uneven pavement or floors; and lack of security, etc.
People who are injured deserve compensation for any pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and other consequences. However, property owners and their insurance companies don’t often pay compensation willingly. The lawyers of Welcenbach Law Offices, S.C. have more than 30 years of trial experience, and can help anyone injured in Milwaukee or the nearby Wisconsin communities of Waukesha, Brookfield, Racine, West Bend, Pewaukee, Delafield, Oconomowoc, and more.
How the law treats slip and fall accidents:
“Premises liability” is the legal term that encompasses slip and falls, and other accidents that cause serious injuries. Premises liability law holds the owners of dangerous property responsible for any injuries which could have avoided had they not been negligent.
Common examples of situations that result in valid premises liability lawsuits include:
- Slips in pools of water or other liquids
- Falls in decrepit apartment buildings
- Merchandise falling from shelves
- Pallets or other objects left in the aisle
- Trips and falls because of holes or uneven surfaces in pavement or floors
Such accidents can cause everything from soft tissue injuries to spinal cord or brain injuries that result in lifelong disabilities, but to get compensation for your injuries, you must be able to prove that the hazard was the cause of the injury. It is important to get a lawyer as quickly as possible after the slip and fall accident, before the property owner has the chance to destroy any evidence.
