Dedicated Slip & Fall Accident Attorneys in Elk River

Property owners are expected to maintain their property so that guests and visitors are safe from harm. When a dangerous condition is allowed to exist, unsuspecting visitors can be seriously injured. The victims of these accidents can bring premises liability lawsuits to collect compensation for their injuries.

At White & Associates, we work to protect the rights of people who have been injured in slip-and-fall accidents. Our law firm has more than 20 years of experience helping clients in Elk River and the surrounding communities. We can help you get the results you deserve after a slip-and-fall accident.

Common Slip & Fall Situations

Almost any unsafe condition can lead to a premises liability claim. Every slip-and-fall case is unique, but there are certain circumstances that are common, including those that involve:

  • Icy sidewalks or parking lots
  • Uneven pavement
  • Wet floors
  • Unlit or poorly lit stairwells
  • Loose handrails
  • Cluttered floors or other obstructions
  • Falls in hospitals and nursing homes

Property Owner Responsibilities

Businesses, restaurants and private homes can all be the site of a slip-and-fall injury. Not every fall results in a lawsuit, however. The key is proving whether the owner was negligent in maintaining the property.

Property owners must make reasonable efforts to keep their premises safe. Generally, property owners must know or have reason to know of the dangerous condition and have the opportunity to correct it before they have violated their duty of care.
