Can you sue a grocery store for a slip and fall accident in Wisconsin?
Yes, you can sue a grocery store for a slip and fall accident in Wisconsin. To win a verdict against a grocery store for a slip and fall, you must prove one of these key points:
- The grocery store caused the dangerous condition leading to your injury.
- The grocery store had knowledge of the dangerous condition leading to your injury and chose to ignore it.
- The dangerous condition leading to your injury was present for such a length of time, the grocery store should have known about the danger.
Warshafsky Won’t Hesitate to Bring the Insurance Company to Court If You’re Not Properly Compensated
Preparing your slip and fall case to win at trial, rather than seeking out the fastest settlement, strengthens your position. This strength turns insurance companies into more agreeable representatives of the parties responsible for your premise’s neglect injury. The fact we begin preparing for trial on day #1 of your case keeps them on their toes. Do not cash the lowball check the insurance company sent you (the first offer is usually a pathetic attempt to make you go away for as little as possible). When we represent your case, that short-changed check will not be the final offer.

No. Again, before you speak to anybody regarding your accident or subsequent injuries, always contact a personal injury attorney first.
