Dangerous Property Conditions/Premises Liability
Every day, we exercise a certain amount of faith that the owners of the grocery stores, gas stations, apartment complexes and other retail outlets that we visit will provide for our safety. When our faith is misplaced and we sustain an injury in a slip-and-fall accident, a dog bite or in another type of premises liability accident, we need to know that the business owner will be held responsible for any negligence.
For more than 35 years, Alpert & Fellows, L.L.P., has provided knowledgeable legal representation to clients in Manitowoc, Green Bay, Sheboygan and in communities along Lake Michigan. Our attorneys are highly experienced in recovering compensation for injures incurred by dangerous property conditions.
We handle cases involving:
- Trip-and-fall/slip-and-fall accidents
- Animal attacks
- Construction code violations
- Loose or missing railings
- Electrical hazards
- Poorly lit stairwells or parking lots
- Negligent security
Wisconsin’s Safe Place Statute
Wisconsin has a “safe place” statute that requires businesses to keep their property as reasonably safe as the nature of the business allows. This means that the legal standards for businesses are different from those for residential homeowners, for instance.
In general, the commercial property owner may be held liable for injuries if:
- He or she caused the dangerous condition or was aware of its existence
- He or she failed to correct the situation or warn people in a timely manner
