What must a victim prove in a business site slip/trip-and-fall?

To prevail in a slip-and-fall lawsuit, the injured plaintiff must prove:

  • The proprietor was negligent
  • That negligence caused the accident

Our attorneys have extensive experience with these types of cases. We take the time to thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your fall, including an in-depth review of a business’ maintenance protocols. We interview all persons whose knowledge of the business and your incident may prove helpful.

Holding proprietors accountable under the Safe Place Statute

Wisconsin is unique among the 50 states in having imposed an affirmative duty on employers, owners of public buildings, owners of places of employment, and architects and builders to make premises safe. This is a higher standard than common law negligence, where a proprietor would be liable for a slip/trip-and-fall injury if he had carelessly allowed an unsafe condition to go uncorrected. Victims of slip/trip-and-fall injuries in Wisconsin do not have to prove that a proprietor was unreasonable; they simply have to prove that the premises at the time of their accident was unsafe.
