It depends. Before you file a lawsuit for a slip and fall injury you want to know that there is a reasonable likelihood that your lawsuit will be successful. Generally, in order to recover damages for a slip and fall accident in the parking lot of a Whole Foods, Walmart, or another Milwaukee store you are going to be able to prove that:
- There was a dangerous condition that the property owner knew about or should have known about.
- The property owner failed to fix the condition or warn you of the condition in a reasonable amount of time.
- You injury was caused by this condition.
- You had a legitimate reason to be on the property.
Of course, you don’t have to do this on your own.
