Slips and falls can happen for many reasons. They can occur due to slippery sidewalks, unsafe walkways, broken stairs, spills on floors, or objects left in a walkway.

With the help of a St. Paul slip and fall attorney, you can have the personal injury representation you need to make a strong claim.
Well-Versed In Property Liability
Property owners have a responsibility to make sure sidewalks and walkways are safe for everyone. However, neglect does happen and that can be the cause of a slip and fall that causes a serious injury.
When you have sustained injuries from the fall, the owner or tenant may be liable if they were at fault. Perhaps they didn’t properly maintain a walkway or post the proper warnings telling people that the walkway was dangerous. If the owner or tenant had any knowledge about the dangerous condition of the property, they can be held accountable. Examples of poorly maintained walkways include:
- A spill in a retail store that an employee didn’t clean up in a timely manner or at least post wet floor signs
- Icy sidewalks that were not de-iced or shoveled in a timely manner
- A large, open hole or defect in the walkway that isn’t marked with barricades or warnings
- Poor lighting that makes it difficult to walk safely through an area
- Stairs that are not properly taken care of
