Slip and Fall Injuries

Minnesota & Nebraska Slip-And-Fall Injury Attorneys

Slip and fall injuries happen often. In fact, everyone has slipped and fell at some point in their life and, in most cases, been okay. However, there are slip and fall accidents that don’t have quite the same outcome. Slip and fall accidents can actually lead to some very serious injuries and, when due to the negligence of another party, those responsible can be pursued for damages related to the injuries.

If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident that was due to the negligence of the property owner, you may be able to hold them accountable for your expenses. With the help of an experienced personal injury attorney who has experience and an extensive history representing clients throughout Minnesota and Nebraska in their cases, you can get results.

Thoroughly Investigating The Cause Of The Accident

When you come to Hunegs, LeNeave & Kvas with your injury claim, you will be able to effectively pursue the responsible party in order to get the compensation that you need. Common areas of slip and fall accidents include:

  • Stairs
  • Slick floors
  • Broken steps
  • Icy sidewalks
  • Elevators
  • Escalators
  • Snowy and ice-covered parking lots
  • Debris that is spread out along pathways and construction sites

Sometimes a fall can occur because of a “freak accident” circumstance. These types of accidents include falls out of windows, falls from roofs, falls from balconies, falls through skylight windows, falling on railroad tracks in railroad yards. The list is quite extensive. If you have experienced a slip and fall injury for any reason, it is important to have the accident investigated when it was not your fault.

Representation In All Slip And Fall Injury Cases

Even if the injury was mild, there is a good chance that you incurred significant expenses for medical care. Just because the injury may have been mild doesn’t mean that you have to write off the accident and pay for the expenses yourself. It is important to hold the responsible party accountable, not only for your own needs, but to ensure that they are not negligent in the future and cause even more serious injury to someone else.

In the case that the accident leads to more serious injuries, there will be a need to seek compensation for long-term medical care. If the slip and fall led to death, then the family has the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Your personal injury attorney will thoroughly evaluate your case and determine the best strategy to help you get results.
