Minnesota Premises Liability Lawyer, Attorney
Premises liability claims are sometimes referred to as slip and fall accidents or fall down accidents. A premises liability case alleges that a property caused a personal injury accident or wrongful death claim. Minnesota state law governs that property owners be responsible to maintain a reasonably safe environment for visitors. This can include airports, hotels, shopping malls, and construction sites.
Reasonable safety in these areas may include keeping the area free of dangerous objects (falling objects), slippery surfaces, and other hidden dangers. Common types of premises liability claims include wrongful death, slip and fall down accidents, construction injuries, and negligence of security.
Property owners must also ensure that their facility is up to standards of local building codes. If a property owner does not ensure the safety and well being of others, then they can be held accountable for injuries.
