Milwaukee Slip and Fall Accidents Attorneys

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere, but people are especially prone to them in and around construction sites. The risk of sustaining an injury on or around a construction site is inherently heightened. Unfortunately, this threat is maximized when construction managers, workers, and property owners are not diligent in their duties and keeping the site safe.

At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, our attorneys know how debilitating a slip and fall injury can be for Milwaukee residents, whether you are an injured worker or passerby. From the debilitating and often disabling injuries that result from these accidents to the emotional and financial burdens it can cause, slip and fall-related injuries can be particularly difficult to deal with on your own. However, by filing a successful premises liability claim, many victims are able to get much-needed compensation.

Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents at Construction Sites

With due care and attention to detail, construction workers and companies can help ensure that dangerous slip and fall accidents do not affect unsuspecting people. Unfortunately, such care and attention is not always forthcoming, and these accidents might occur due to the following:

  • Failure to pick up debris or waste
  • Roadway and walkway obstructions
  • Leaving surfaces wet or slippery
  • Failure to cover open manholes
  • Poorly constructed stairs, walkways, and barriers

Unfortunately, negligent acts such as these could cause innocent people serious and lasting harm.
