When you are out and about running errands, heading to or from work, or rushing to class, you expect your walking path to be safe. You take for granted that parking lots, sidewalks, and aisles of stores are clean and litter free. However, there are times when walkways and paths are not as clean or safe as they should be.

In this situation, you need the skilled legal help of the slip and fall lawyers from Studinski Law, LLC on your side.

Slips and falls are extremely common. You may have slipped or tripped due to an object or condition that should not have been there.
Some of the most common conditions that cause slip and fall accidents include:
If you are lucky, you can brush yourself off after a fall. You may have a few scrapes and bruises, but only your pride really suffered. However, in many circumstances, falls cause moderate-to-serious injuries. If you land the wrong way or fall a significant distance, you may suffer:
After suffering an unexpected slip and fall in public or at another person’s home or business, you may have questions. Was it really your fault? Or is someone else to blame for the hazard you encountered?
If you were not behaving in a careless or reckless way, and you slipped or tripped on a hazard you could not have seen or avoided, then the owner or manager of the property may be responsible for your fall. That owner or manager may also be responsible for compensating you for your injuries.
Another issue in slip and fall cases is whether you were lawfully on the property. If you were a personal guest, customer, or visitor to the area where you were hurt, then the owner or tenant may be responsible for your injuries. However, if you were trespassing and should not have been in the building or on the land where you were hurt, you may have a difficult time pursuing compensation. Our slip and fall attorneys can help you determine your options after a slip, trip, or fall.
Under Wisconsin law, owners and occupiers of premises are required to maintain their properties in a way that protects visitors from an unreasonable risk of injury. Whether it is a private house, apartment building, office, public parking lot, hotel, or any other type of building or location you may visit, the owner or current tenant needs to:
If you were injured in a slip and fall accident and you believe the owners or tenants of the property made no effort to learn of the dangerous condition or knew about it and failed to correct it, call us today. We will look into the accident and gather evidence of the owner or occupier’s responsibility for the hazard, your fall, and your injuries.
Proving a premises liability claim can be difficult. However, we are up to the challenge. We will conduct an in-depth, independent investigation into your accident, including gathering:
Through our inquiry, we will seek to prove that the owner:
A slip and fall lawsuit can be complicated. However, if we are able to prove the property owner or occupier was negligent in maintaining their premises, which led to your getting hurt, then we will seek compensation for your:
If you were injured because someone did not take care of their property and keep it safe for visitors, then call us at Studinski Law, LLC right away. A slip, trip, or fall can be embarrassing.
