Property owners should provide a safe environment for visitors by regularly inspecting their premises, promptly repairing any hazards discovered and adequately warning guests about potential dangers.

In Wisconsin, premises liability law covers the following types of cases, among others:

  • Slip, trip and fall accidents
  • Dog bites and animal attacks
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Accidents in retail stores or shopping malls
  • Parking lot falls
  • Negligent security issues

Victims can seek compensation through premises liability claims against the property owner or manager.

The statute of limitations for Wisconsin premises liability cases typically allows victims to sue within three years from the date of the injury. It’s important to consult with a lawyer promptly to understand specific deadlines that may apply to your case.

The law allows for a victim to seek compensation from various parties in a premises liability case, including the property owner, property manager, tenants or other parties responsible for maintaining the premises where the injury occurred.

As a social visitor at a neighbor’s place, you may be able to file a premises liability claim if your injury was caused by a dangerous condition that the homeowner knew about or should have known about but did not address or properly warn you about.
