Wisconsin Slip and Fall Lawyers
When you are invited onto a property as a guest or visitor, you assume that the property owner safely maintains the facilities so that you are not in danger. However, if you suffer from an injury while you are there, the property owner may be held responsible for your suffering as part of premises liability law.
A common consequence of negligent property maintenance is slip and fall accidents. While a simple slip and fall accident may not sound very serious, it can result in painful and even permanent injuries. If you have suffered in a slip or trip and fall accident, you have the option of attempting to hold the premises owner responsible so that his or her negligence cannot injure more innocent victims.

Dangers of Slip and Fall Accidents
If you slip or trip and fall, it typically causes a few bumps and bruises that heal in about a week. However, if you lose your balance and fall in an awkward position, or from a great height, it can actually result in severe injuries, such as:
- Broken bones
- Lacerations or gashes that require stitches
- Internal bleeding
- Head trauma
- Brain damage
Additionally, if you are holding a child in your arms when you trip, slip, or fall, the child can suffer from the injuries listed above, as well as additional stress from the weight of your body landing on them. If you have experienced harmful and expensive injuries on a poorly maintained property, our Wisconsin trip and fall attorneys are ready to work for you.
If a premises owner knows about a potential hazard, such as a wet floor, he or she is responsible for taking care of it or at least posting obvious warning signs. However, if a premises owner has failed in this duty to you, resulting in a slip and fall, you do not have to let this act of negligence go unpunished.
