When you slip and fall on someone's property, be it a business or a home, you are on the owner's premises, or property. As such, that owner, and any manager or supervisor on duty, has the responsibility to ensure that the property is as safe as possible. When they fail to do so, and someone slips, falls and is hurt, then a premises liability suit can most certainly be filed.
Among premises liability cases in Wisconsin, slip and fall and trip and fall accidents are the most common. Other examples of premises liability cases include dog bites and other accidents such as items from a shelf falling onto a customer's head.
