Premises Liability and Slip & Fall Accidents in Nebraska

Let Our Omaha Lawyers Help Your Recover the Compensation You Deserve

Whether it’s visiting a friend’s home or shopping at your local grocery store, premises liability and slip and fall accidents can happen at any time, resulting in serious injuries. While some of these types of accidents are the fault of the victim, there are other instances where they could’ve been prevented if it wasn’t for the negligence or carelessness of a property owner, management team, or staff members of the establishment.

At Burnett Wilson Law, we have decades of experience handling premises liability cases in Nebraska, including slip and fall accidents. We evaluate your case and determine all of available legal options in order to obtain the best results possible. Do not risk having to pay for your injuries out of your own wallet without experienced legal representation.

Determining Liability

Property owners, landlords, managers, and employees are obligated to provide a duty of care to their visitors, customers, guests, and tenants at all times. If they fail to address issues on their property—such as a wet surface or a defective stairway—and these issues result in an injury, they may be held liable for a premises liability lawsuit.

To prove liability for your injury, you must demonstrate one or more of the following:

  • The owner or possessor created the condition or
  • The owner or possessor knew the condition existed and negligently failed to fix it or
  • The dangerous condition could not reasonably be expected to have been discovered or known by you or was otherwise no reasonably avoidable or
  • The condition existed for such a length of time that the owner or possessor should have found and fixed it before the slip and fall accident in question occurred

In other words, for a property owner to be held accountable, it must have been foreseeable that his or her negligence created the hazard in question.
