Wisconsin Premises Liability Attorney
We are here to help!
Some of the most commonly filed personal injury lawsuits in Wisconsin are lawsuits that involve premises liability accidents. These accidents often revolve around a landlord or building owner's failure to properly address accidents and maintain the safety of the premises for tenants and visitors alike.
Commonly, premises liability cases include slip and fall or trip and fall accidents, falls from heights, and unsafe or unstable objects. If you or a loved one was wrongly injured due to hazardous premises, you may be entitled to bring a claim against the property owner to receive compensation. At Cannon & Dunphy S.C., our team of professional and experienced Milwaukee premises liability lawyers can help ensure that your rights are actively protected during a premises liability case.
Slip and Fall Injuries
The most common types of premises liability cases involve slip and fall or trip and fall injuries. These injuries occur when a property owner, like a landlord or business owner, fails to maintain the quality of their property or keep it secure.
Proving negligence in a slip and fall case can be quite difficult, because the plantiff must provide evidence that the person responsible for the premises not only knew about the existence of the hazard, but also failed to take the required steps to fix it. There are two types of knowledge in slip and fall cases. First is "actual knowledge," meaning the hazard was reported to the owner or they knew of its existence prior to the accident. The second is "constructive knowledge," which means the hazard existed long enough that the owner should reasonably have known of its existence.
