Helping Protect Your Premises Liability Claim
When you are visiting another person’s property or a place of business, the owners of this property have a duty to provide you with certain protections. If they have knowledge of any potentially dangerous issues, they must take steps to correct those deficiencies or provide notice regarding the items of concern.
In some circumstances, property owners or their agents fail to address these matters in a timely fashion. Should you visit these properties and suffer an injury, you may have a claim for compensation against the property owner.
At Sparr, Belville & Brown, LLC, based in Oshkosh, we help people who have been injured in premises liability and slip-and fall accidents throughout Wisconsin. With over 30 years of personal injury experience, our lawyers can help you determine if you have a case and the appropriate steps to take to protect your claim.
Handling A Range Of Premises Liability Accidents
Our attorneys understand the specific issues in premises liability cases. We will take the time to explain your options and work with you to determine what is most important to you. We handle a variety of premises liability claims, including:
- Defective automatic doors
- Failure to repair defective steps
- Slippery floors
- Rug slip hazards
- Collapsing stairs
- Inadequate security
- Dog bites
Your claim will vary depending on whether the accident occurred on private residential property or commercial property. In Wisconsin, residential property owners and commercial property owners hold different levels of responsibility for accidents that occur on their property.
Commercial property is governed by the Safe Place Law, which requires property owners to keep their premises as safe and free from potentially dangerous conditions as they reasonably can. If you have been injured on commercial property and the property owner’s negligence caused or contributed to the accident, you may have a claim under Wisconsin’s Safe Place Law.
