Premises Liability Attorney in Eagan & Mendota Heights
The owner of a residential or commercial property has the absolute duty and responsibility for maintaining their property adequately and safely. This can include the responsibility of general contractors to maintain a safe work environment in construction areas.
Adequate maintenance includes everything from shoveling snow and repairing cracks in sidewalks and parking lots, offering proper security, as well as safety measures such as providing adequate lighting in commercial spaces, and performing routine maintenance to keep the property in good repair or to maintain a safe workplace. Clients rely on our knowledge and experience when they have been injured by the negligence of property owners or contractors. We pursue the compensation clients deserve for injuries that occurred on a dangerous property.

Dangerous work conditions
The owner or manager of an apartment complex, hotel, mall, church, or any publicly or privately-owned property has the duty to provide its patrons and residents with proper security. This includes adequate safety measures, lighting, security, and maintenance. The same can be said for contractors that need to provide a safe work environment. When someone is injured because of inadequate security or maintenance, we fight hard to ensure victims who have been injured receive the compensation they deserve for those injuries.
Victims Who Have Been Attacked on a Property in Minnesota Can Receive Compensation for Their Injuries
It is not just “slip-and-fall” injuries that individuals suffer that can result in being compensated.
At Sieben Edmunds Miller, we represent Minnesota personal injury clients who have been attacked or sexually assaulted as the result of a property owner’s negligence or failure to provide adequate security, along with representing clients who have been injured due to the improper maintenance of property conditions. In any privately-owned space that is available to the public, the owner of the property has an absolute obligation to protect the safety and well-being of anyone in a parking lot, shopping at a mall, in a school or at university, in a bar or restaurant, while in an office building, or generally going about their lawful business and day-to-day affairs.
Wrongful Death Victims
We represent clients with family members who have died as a result of a dangerous property condition whether it was because they were not adequately protected while at work or on the job, were attacked, or because they were hurt as a result of the property being poorly maintained. We want you to feel comfortable talking to our personal injury attorneys during this highly emotional time. We will pursue the wrongful death compensation to which surviving family members are entitled.
