Slip and Fall Accidents in Parking Lots: Call Milwaukee Injury Attorneys Today
Slipping and falling in a parking lot isn’t just embarrassing, it can also be extremely painful. When flesh and bone meet cold, hard asphalt, the results are never pleasant. Around Milwaukee, the most common cause of slips and falls in parking lots is ice or snow. However, inadequate lighting and uneven pavement both contribute to many slips and falls, as well.
If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident due to a poorly maintained parking lot, you may have grounds to sue to recover for your medical expenses. The applicable law is known as premises liability. To win a suit, you need to prove the accident was caused by a dangerous condition the property owner knew or should have known about, and which you could not have anticipated. Snow on the ground caused your fall? Maybe not grounds for a suit. A thin layer of ice from where an employee dumped a bucket of water? Now we’re talking.
Your best course of action, after seeking treatment for your injuries, is to consult with a law firm experienced in personal injury cases. Our Milwaukee slip and fall attorneys offer a free initial legal consultation to assess your case and answer any questions you may have. Schedule yours today.
