Chicago Slip & Fall Lawyer
Were you hurt in a "slip and fall" accident?
Every year in the United States,
over one million people are involved in slip and fall accidents. These accidents can result in
painful injuries and even death. From tripping on a flight of stairs to
slipping on wet floor, these accidents can cause serious injuries, such as:
- Broken bones
- Head trauma
- Spinal cord injuries
Up to 30% of people who are involved in a slip and fall accident will suffer
moderate to severe injuries, such as hip fractures and head injuries,
according to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Proving Negligence in Slip & Fall Accidents
If the accident occurs on someone else's premises, the property owner
could be considered negligent and the victim may be able to hold them
legally responsible for their injuries. The property owner could be liable under
premises liability law for any injuries sustained if they were the result of unsafe conditions
that should have been prevented by the owner.
Victims of slip and fall accidents may be entitled to recover compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Damaged property
- Emotional distress
- Missed wages
- Loss of work capacity
- Other damages
If you or a loved one has been harmed because of another's negligence,
it is important to discuss your case and legal options with a knowledgeable
Dyer personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
