Minnesota Slip Trip & Fall Attorneys & Lawyers

Surprisingly, slips, trips and falls are the second leading cause of death in the United States. It is estimated that over 16,000 people die each year from such incidents. Many other slips, trips and falls result in serious injuries, such as broken bones, traumatic brain injury, paralysis and neck injuries.

In Minnesota, property and business owners have the important responsibility of keeping their premises in reasonably safe condition. Unfortunately, many fail to fulfill this responsibility.

Our slip, trip and fall attorneys handle a wide range of claims, including injuries or death from:

  • Slippery Floors;
  • Failure to Remove Snow or Ice;
  • Swimming Pool Accidents;
  • Poor Lighting;
  • Unmarked, Uneven Walking Surfaces;
  • Holes or Cracks in Pavement or Concrete; and
  • Loose Steps or Handrails.

Under Minnesota’s statute of limitations, a person who suffers an injury from a slip, trip or fall must bring their claim within six years from the date of the incident. If the injury results from a construction defect, the action must be brought within two years from the discovery of the injury or ten years after substantial completion of the construction project.

Slip, trip and fall cases can be very challenging. At the Brown Law Offices, P.A. we represent clients who have suffered a serious injury as the result of a slip, trip or fall. Our lawyers are dedicated to protecting the rights of the injured and have obtained many favorable settlements for injury victims. Slip, trip and fall cases are accepted on a contingency basis, so you pay no fee unless we make a recovery on your behalf.

In order to build a strong slip, trip or fall case, it must be demonstrated that the property or business owner caused an unsafe condition, was aware of the dangerous condition but failed to correct it or should have been aware of the condition and corrected it as a reasonable person would have done. Injury victims, and their family, may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering and punitive damages.

Minnesota Snowmobile Accident Attorneys & Lawyers

They can be exciting and entertaining … true wintertime thrills. As enthusiastic snowmobilers ourselves, we know how much peace may be found out on the trails. But, snowmobiles can also be dangerous, particularly if the operator fails to exercise reasonable care or the snowmobile has not been designed properly.

The Minnesota snowmobile accident attorneys with the Brown Law Offices, P.A. understand how devastating a snowmobile accident can be – not only to the person injured or killed, but to their entire family. We’re here to help obtain all of compensation to which you may be entitled under the law.

Unfortunately, each and every year in the State of Minnesota, people of all ages end up seriously injured as the result of snowmobile accidents. Snowmobile accidents often result in very serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, knee injuries, bone fractures and wrongful death.

Serious snowmobile accidents are caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Negligence of a Driver;
  • Intoxication of the Driver;
  • Property Owners Failing to Remove Hazards;
  • Excessive Trail Speed;
  • Inexperience of the Operator; or
  • Defective Design of the Snowmobile

Many snowmobiles have been recalled in recent years, including models produced by Polaris, Yamaha, Ski-Doo and Arctic Cat. Design defect cases are very challenging and require the assistance of an expert who is familiar with the relevant standard of care.

You may be entitled to recover for past and future lost wages, past and future medical bills, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, disfigurement and, possibly, punitive damages, if you’ve been injured in a snowmobile accident through no fault of your own. The source of recovery may include a snowmobile owner, snowmobile operator or property owner. Many snowmobile owners and most property owners will have insurance policies in place that will afford coverage to you.
