Slip and fall cases, especially on ice in Minnesota, can be challenging but are not impossible to win. Cases are pursued against the property owners, businesses and their insurance companies.
Property owners and businesses have a duty of care they must provide to visitors and consumers when they are on the premises of their home or business. There are several types of slip and fall or trip and fall scenarios that can occur that may amount to a claim, such as slipping on ice or a wet floor or tripping on an irregular sidewalk or a floor that is not level. Many insurance companies provide coverage for medical expenses, regardless of fault, in addition to liability coverage.
Retaining legal counsel immediately will allow an experienced attorney the opportunity to investigate the hazard and work to ensure the injured party receives all benefits available through the insurance policies.
