We Have a Track Record of Success

Over the last 30 years, the attorneys at Nelson Personal Injury have helped our clients recover millions of dollars in compensation for their injuries.  We have done this by taking on the insurance companies and fighting for what is fair for our clients.  Our slip and fall attorneys boast decades of expertise in providing legal services to Minnesota residents involved in slip and fall incidents, with a commitment to offering the highest quality representation available.

Our attorneys have extensive knowledge when it comes to Minnesota personal injury law, including what is required to prove liability in the slip and fall cases, as well as how to prove what damages have been sustained.  Because of the defenses afforded to property in owners in Minnesota, slip and fall cases can be difficult cases to pursue.  We understand that each case requires a fact specific analysis to determine whether there are sufficient factual and legal bases to pursue a claim.  Each case requires its own thorough review and analysis of all relevant evidence, such as:

  • Witness statements;
  • Photos/videos from the incident location;
  • Medical records and reports regarding the injuries suffered in the fall; and
  • Police or other incident reports (if applicable).

The review and analysis of this information will help our lawyers determine if you have a claim to pursue under Minnesota law.  If you do, we will help you try to obtain compensation for your damages, including for your medical expenses, wage loss, and pain and suffering.

We Offer Dedicated Client Service

At Nelson Personal Injury, our lawyers, Matthew Nelson and Timothy Nelson, are dedicated to providing quality representation and reliable client service while getting our clients results. We believe that no one should ever have to go through this process alone and will provide personalized attention during every step of your case. From investigating the claim, to filing paperwork, to dealing with the insurance company, and all the way through settlement negotiations or a trial, if necessary, our attorneys will keep you informed along the way so that you always know what’s going on with your case and feel confident about its progress towards resolution.  To ensure our clients are empowered with knowledge of their rights during this difficult time, we prioritize answering all questions quickly and comprehensively.

Our Legal Fees Are Affordable

At Nelson Personal Injury, we understand how expensive it can be to hire a lawyer.  Insurance companies have the resources to hire a team of expensive lawyers.  People who have been injured may often think to themselves, “how can I compete with that?”  We believe that everyone should have access to top quality legal representation, regardless of their financial situation.  That is why we work on what is called a contingency fee.  Meaning, we only have attorney’s fees if we obtain a recovery for you.  If there is a recovery, our fees are paid as a percentage of the recovery.  If there is no recovery, you never have to pay us fees…ever.

FAQs in Relation to Hiring Us to Handle Your Slip and Fall Case

What will your personal injury lawyer do?

The first thing your slip and fall lawyer will do is analyze the facts specific to your situation to determine if you have a legal basis to pursue a claim.  If you do, our personal injury attorneys will provide comprehensive legal counsel and representation, and will work tirelessly on your behalf to develop a comprehensive strategy, and negotiate with the insurance companies to ensure you collect the compensation you deserve.

How can your personal injury attorneys prove negligence in a slip and fall case?

To prove negligence in a slip and fall case, you must prove that there was a dangerous or hazardous condition on the property, the owner knew or should have known of the existence of that condition, and that they did nothing to remedy or warn of that dangerous condition.  For example, if a store owner knows the front walkway is icy, and it is dark out, and they do nothing to provide lighting, remove the hazard, or warn of the hazard, that could be considered actionable negligence and they could be held responsible for your injuries.  Your lawyer will investigate and review all relevant facts to develop a legal strategy to prove negligence on the part of the property owner.
