Holding Property Owners Accountable When They Fail To Maintain Safety Standards
Wisconsin has a “safe place” law that requires business owners to keep their facilities as safe as the nature of the business would reasonably permit for guests and employees. This includes the maintenance or clean up of any dangerous condition that the public is likely to be exposed to on commercial property such as:
If you slip and fall because of these or other problems left unattended on a commercial property, you have the right to sue for compensation for your injuries.
John O’Connor has successfully resolved many slip-and-fall cases, some that other lawyers turned down. He is well-known for his honesty, dedication and tenacity when pursuing justice for his clients. He has been a trial attorney for more than 35 years and knows the tricks insurance companies will use to avoid paying victims of accidents the fair and full compensation they are entitled to.
Whether you slipped on the ice and hurt your back or you fell down the stairs and sustained catastrophic injuries when you tripped on a loose board, we will work hard to show fault on the part of the property owner. Many businesses now have closed circuit television cameras in their establishments, which allows us to see how long a dangerous condition was left before it was taken care of after someone had an accident. The cameras will also show if more than one person was injured by the property owner’s failure to correct the situation. We use these video records to show fault on the part of the property owner and get you the compensation for your injuries that you are entitled to.
