The unfortunate truth is that personal injury caused by another person’s negligence is a common occurrence in the United States, resulting in harm ranging from minor injuries to those that cause permanent disability.

Slip and Fall
It is a property owner’s responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone who steps onto their property because when dangerous conditions exist on a property, serious accidents can occur. The most common type of premise liability case is a slip and fall accident.
Having an experienced, aggressive personal injury attorney is important because winning slip and fall accident cases can be extremely complex and complicated. In order to win a slip and fall lawsuit, the plaintiff must prove that the property owner:
- knew of the danger (such as a broken step or damaged railing) that caused the accident
- had ample time to fix the hazard before the victim’s accident occurred
Victims of slip and fall accidents deserve appropriate compensation for any injuries sustained, regardless of what caused the accident.

Walking is great exercise and can be good for overall health, but accidents do occur. Severe injuries or death can result from traffic accidents involving pedestrians since victims are completely exposed when hit by a car or other moving vehicle.
Crossing the street, particularly at a non-intersection, increases the risk of an accident, but there are no guarantees a motorist will stop at intersections and other designated crosswalks. Children between the ages of 5 and 9 are at the greatest risk because their small stature makes them more difficult to see. Their ability to hear a moving vehicle does not develop until age 10. The elderly are also at high risk for being involved in pedestrian accidents.
Pedestrian accidents can result in wrongful death or serious injuries such as broken bones, amputation, traumatic brain injury, neck, back, and spinal cord injuries.
Semi-trucks are unquestionably the most dangerous motor vehicles that occupy Minnesota highways.

Our dedicated legal team will meticulously investigate the circumstances surrounding your accident, engage in hard-nosed negotiation with any insurance companies, and passionately and zealously advocate your best interest in court.
Depending on the kind of relationship a property owner has with the person on their property, the visitor is divided into three categories, each with a different degree of duty:
- Invitees – a person invited to enter someone’s property for business or commercial reasons, e.g. customers at a store or clients at a business. The property owner must ensure that the invitees enter a safe property or are warned of any foreseeable dangers in the property.
- Licensees – a person invited into someone’s property for non-commercial reasons, e.g. a person attending a party. If any injuries occur to the visitor while on premises and the property owner knew or should have known about the risks and failed to notify the visitor(s), then the property owner is held responsible.
- Trespassers – a person who enters another person’s property without permission. The property owner must not use excessive force when trying to remove the trespasser.
If you have suffered injury whilst on another person’s property, you may be able to file a premises liability lawsuit if that person is responsible for your injuries. If the accident occurred in someone else’s home, you might be eligible to file a homeowner liability lawsuit.
If you are injured from a property owner’s negligence, you may be entitled to claim compensation to pay your medical bills and lost wages. Contact AMA Law Group, PLLC today to speak to one of our experienced premises liability attorneys to learn more about how we can help you.
How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Case?
Our experienced personal injury lawyers can help you determine if you have a case. If you have been in a car or truck accident, or if you suffered an injury due to a fall, the most important step in determining if you have a right to compensation is to have a detailed understanding of the facts. For instance, if you were in a car accident, one of our experienced personal injury attorneys will discuss with you the facts surrounding the accident, and will help you decide whether you should pursue your case.
Is There a Time Limit to File a Personal Injury Case?
If you sustained an injury that you believe was due to someone else’s negligence, it is important that you act quickly to build a strong case. Your first step after seeking medical attention should be to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can explain your rights. Waiting too long could mean the disappearance of key evidence or an inability to remember what happened. More importantly, speaking to an insurance company before contacting a personal injury lawyer can be a mistake. After all, the insurance company’s goal is to settle for as little money as possible, not to compensate you for what you deserve.
