Premises liability involves those situations where an individual sustains injury while on the property of another person or business owner. Simply because you have been injured on the property of another does not mean the owner of that property is automatically liable for your injuries. Premises liability law in Wisconsin is quite complex. The nature and type of property upon which you were injured is an important factor in determining which Wisconsin law applies and greatly impacts your recovery.
Individuals who sustain injury while on the premises of another often sustain catastrophic harm including:
- Lower leg fractures
- Hip fractures
- Arm fractures
- Head injuries
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Wrist injuries
- Shoulder injuries
