Wisconsin’s frozen winters create dangerous conditions, especially if homeowners don’t shovel and salt their sidewalks after each snowfall. However, other dangerous situations can result in a slip and fall. Any time a property owner knows of a danger on their property and fails to fix it or warn of it, they are liable for any injuries that may occur.
If you were injured in a fall because the property owner was negligent, you may be eligible for compensation to cover your medical bills and lost wages, as well as for pain and suffering. These conditions may include:
- Uncleared snow
- Clear ice or “black ice”
- Improperly secured mats and rugs
- Hidden drop-offs
- Pot holes
- Wet/bad floor
- Poor lighting
