Were you injured as a result of slipping and falling at someone else’s property? It may have been an accident, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t owed compensation for your injuries.
Under Minnesota state law, a property owner has a duty to exercise a reasonable care to ensure that their property is safe for whomever uses it. In other words, if a property owner allowed an unreasonably dangerous tripping or slipping hazard to remain on their premises, they may have been negligent in doing so.

Frequently Asked Questions: Slip and Falls
What should I do if I slip and fall on someone else’s property?
If you slip and fall on someone else’s property, prioritize your safety and seek medical attention for any injuries. Report the incident to the property owner or manager and document the scene by taking photographs. Collect contact information from any witnesses. Consult with a personal injury attorney experienced in slip and fall cases to determine liability and pursue compensation for your injuries.
How is liability determined in slip and fall cases?
Liability in slip and fall cases is often determined by establishing that the property owner or occupier was negligent in maintaining a safe environment. Factors such as inadequate warning signs, poor maintenance, or failure to address hazardous conditions contribute to liability. An experienced slip and fall attorney can help gather evidence and build a strong case to establish liability.
Can I still file a slip and fall claim if I was partially responsible for the accident?
In many jurisdictions, you may still file a slip and fall claim even if you were partially responsible for the accident. The legal concept of comparative negligence allows for compensation based on the degree of fault. Consult with a slip and fall attorney to understand how this principle applies to your case and what compensation you may be eligible to receive.
