Common causes of actionable slip and fall accidents include:

  • Slippery surfaces caused by snow, ice and water

  • Improperly designed properties such as poor construction of railings, balconies, porches, staircases, etc.

Any of these conditions can cause a slip and fall accident that results in injury and possible legal recovery.

What Can I Recover From A Slip And Fall Accident Lawsuit?

Who Can I Recover From After A Fall?

In a slip and fall accident, where you fell will have a major impact on your case and potential recovery. You will need to prove that someone else is legally responsible for your fall.

Common places where slip and fall accidents occur, and who is ultimately responsible:

  • Grocery stores: frequent spills, wet floors and trip hazards make grocery stores common areas for slip and fall accidents.
  • Amusement Parks: poorly designed walkways and improperly maintained equipment can cause slip and fall accidents.
  • Restaurants: Slip and fall accidents at restaurants are typically due to spills, and are avoidable with reasonable diligence.
  • Hotels: slippery floors, damaged carpets, and poor lighting can create conditions leading to slip and fall accidents.
What Is Wisconsin's Safe Place Statute?

Wisconsin’s Safe Place Statute covers places of employment and public buildings, and applies to employees and people who frequently visit those locations. The Safe Place Statute holds employers, owners of public buildings, owners of places of employment, and builders responsible for constructing, maintaining and repairing the premises so that it is free of dangerous conditions.

Cases where the Safe Place Statute applies are often easier to prove, as the law holds an employer or the owner of a place of work to a higher standard of care.

When Should I File A Slip And Fall Claim?

Generally, the statute of limitations in Wisconsin for filing a slip and fall case is three years from the date of the accident. However, this limitation period may vary depending on the specifics of your case. For such reason, you should contact a Milwaukee personal injury attorney as soon as possible to preserve your legal rights to recover.
